If you answered “yes” to these three questions, we have good news for you. The tax-favored treatment of charitable contributions from IRAs has been made permanent by the federal government. Here’s how it works:
For example, let’s say your RMD for 2016 is $15,000. If $10,000 was donated directly from your IRA to CYC, you would only need to take $5,000 additional as a taxable IRA distribution from your IRA.
