Tax-free Gifts from your IRA

PPM supporters eligible to withdraw funds from an IRA can take advantage of “one of the biggest breaks in the tax code” known as a Qualified Charitable Deduction (QCD). A QCD is an otherwise taxable distribution from an IRA owned by an individual who is age 70½ or over that is paid directly from the IRA to a qualified charity.  QCD donations are not affected by the 2017 Tax Cut changes.  For details on this process read PPM IRA-QCD 2016 [4].
