Charitable ira rollover

Congress has passed a tax extenders package making the Charitable IRA Rollover provision permanent. The tax extenders package, known as the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, makes permanent a number of provisions that allows taxpayers over 70 1/2 to make donations up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.
