The President has just signed HR 5771 into law. This law includes a one year extension of expired tax provisions retroactive to January 1, 2014, including a reauthorization of the IRA charitable rollover through December 31, 2014. Donors age 70 ½ and older may now transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA to a qualified public charity. The transfer is not subject to federal income tax and qualifies for the donor's 2014 required minimum distribution (RMD). Hope College cannot give legal or tax advice. We strongly recommend you contact your attorney or tax professional for further guidance.
All of us at Hope College wish you and your family a joyful Christmas and blessings in the coming year!
