Satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution
without increasing your taxable income
Required Minimum Distributions can sometimes be large enough to push you into a higher tax bracket; but when the RMD is directed to a charitable organization, it is not added to your taxable income.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!
This strategy must be put in place before the RMD is distributed or it will still be included in your taxable income. Be sure to allow ample time for the charity to receive the distribution by December 31 to guarantee credit in the proper year.
