IRA Distributions

How an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift Works:

Making a distribution is a very easy process.  Simply contact your plan administrator and let them know you would like to make a charitable donation from your IRA (Depending on your plan, you may be able to do this online, or by writing a check directly from your IRA account.).  

 

You will need to provide the following information:

Jewish Federation of Howard County

10630 Little Patuxent Parkway, Suite 400

Columbia, MD 21044

You may be asked for our EIN when your distribution requests are made: 23-7072654

 

At the end of the year, the administrator will provide you with a Form 1099-R so you can report it on your taxes. The distribution will go on your Form 1040 tax return, where you will report the distribution as a non-taxed Qualified Charitable Distribution. Contact your tax professional for additional information.

For a QCD to count towards your current year's Required Minimum Distribution, the funds must come out of your IRA by your RMD deadline, generally December 31.
