IRA Rollover Update


« Back




IRA Rollover Update: In 2015, Congress enacted a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover. As a result, individuals age 70½ or older can make gifts directly from their IRA to charity in 2015, 2016 and beyond.

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further the Ruffed Grouse Society or American Woodcock Society’s (RGS/AWS) mission. If you are 70½ or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue RGS/AWS’ work and benefit this year.
