As originally enacted, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 allowed for an exclusion from gross income of up to $100,000 per IRA owner per year from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA for a “qualiﬁed charitable distribution” made during 2006 and 2007 by an IRA owner who has attained age 70½ on the date of distribution. As a result of the extension of this provision, an IRA owner who has attained age 70½ is allowed to make a tax-free distribution from a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA on or before December 31, 2013 to organizations that qualify under §170(b)(1)(A) i.e., a public charity. If you are age 70 ½ and want to help the camp and have an IRA account, this may be something to consider with your financial advisor. See details by clicking on link below:
