new ira rollover bill


The House has just renewed and made permanent the IRA Charitable Rollover bill. This bill applies to individuals that are 70-1/2 years and older, and allows them to make a direct transfer of up to $100,000 per person from a traditional IRA to benefit qualified 501(C)(3) charities without recognizing the income on a tax return. This legislation was made retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015.

Please note that Wisconsin does not recognize the federal IRA charitable rollover rules; therefore, an IRA charitable rollover will not receive beneficial Wisconsin state income tax treatment under current law.

This legislation is part of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015.
