IRA Charitable Rollover
If you have assets in an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), there may be a tax-strategy to make gifts from these assets rather than from your bank account. The government requires you to take a minimum distribution from your IRA, regardless if you have sufficient income from other sources, beginning with the year you turn age 72 (70 ½ if you turned 70 ½ in 2019). The IRA Charitable Rollover allows you to direct $100,000 of your required minimum distribution directly to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. The amount of the gift will not be included as taxable income to you, yet satisfies your annual required minimum distribution and provides support to a favorite non-profit like MMoCA.
