Important IRA Rollover Information

The IRA Charitable Rollover provision, established under the Pension Protection Act, allows individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their traditional IRA or Roth IRA, without treating the distribution as a taxable income.

The donor’s plan administrator must issue the check directly to the charity. Donors may receive no goods or services in return for their contributions, and must obtain written documentation of their contribution from each recipient charity.

For more information, contact your IRA administrator or call the BLT office.
