Making an end of year gift to NBP through your IRA can help you save estate tax, save your family income taxes, while providing the gift of Literacy. In 2013 you have available a unique opportunity to donate up to $100,000 to charity from your IRA in a tax advantaged way. This rule has been passed on a year-to-year basis and could change in future years.
Under this provision, those who are 70½ or older can give away as much as $100,000 a year from their individual retirement accounts directly to eligible charities without having to include it as part of their gross income and therefor are not taxed on it. The transfer must be made directly from the IRA to NBP.
Although taxpayers can't deduct any such transfers as charitable donations on their federal income-tax returns, this provision can be a tax-efficient technique. Since transfers aren't counted as part of adjusted gross income, this provision could help prevent such things as the loss of itemized tax deductions, phaseout of personal exemptions or credits, and additional portions of Social Security being taxable. Speak to your financial adviser for more details.
