New as of December 2015

Beneficial Change in Law Regarding Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

With the newly signed Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (PATH), those 70 and older, (72 and older for those born in 1950 or later), can now directly donate up to $100,000 from an IRA to qualifying charities such as The Mark Twain House & Museum and satisfy their required minimum distribution while excluding the distribution from their taxable income.

This provision was previously temporary and renewed each year, but has now been made permanent and retroactive to the beginning of 2015. This is not only beneficial to the affluent, but can be attractive to those who do not itemize deductions by allowing them to receive a tax benefit from their charitable contribution. Please consult your financial advisor for more details regarding your particular situation and charitable contribution.
