Is the Charitable IRA Rollover
Right for You?
The charitable IRA rollover may be
particularly appealing if
You want to make an
to Johns Hopkins that will have
immediate impact. A charitable IRA
rollover cannot fund a life income
gift like a charitable gift annuity.
You have a required minimum
distribution, but do not need
additional, taxable income.
A charitable IRA rollover can
satisfy the requirement with a direct
transfer to Johns Hopkins.
You have maxed out your charitable
income tax deductions. An IRA
distribution operates separately from
tax rules that limit the tax benefit of
individual charitable giving.
You do not itemize your income tax
deductions. If your IRA distribution
goes directly to Johns Hopkins, the
amount of your distribution is never
considered taxable income to you
in the first place.
You reside in a state that does not
allow itemized charitable deductions.
In states that do not allow a charitable
deduction or limit the charitable
deduction, a charitable rollover from
your IRA is advantageous on the state
tax-level, even if your state does not
allow a charitable deduction.
