Hurry! The IRA charitable rollover is back

Congress in early January extended the popular individual retirement account (IRA) charitable rollover for 2012 and 2013.

First introduced in 2006, the on-again, off-again rule allows individuals over age 70 ½ to transfer directly up to $100,000 per year from an IRA account to the UNT Foundation Inc.

Donors can take advantage of this tax-free transfer anytime during 2013, but 2012 gifts are also included for a limited time only:

  • An IRA charitable rollover to the UNT Foundation by Jan. 31, 2013, may be counted retroactively for the 2012 tax year
  • Money distributed from an IRA in December 2012 can also be converted into a charitable gift if funds are transferred to the UNT Foundation before Feb. 1, 2013.

Act fast on this giving opportunity to support a program of your choice at UNT. Contact us to learn more about how you can convert your taxable IRA distribution and potentially reduce your taxes.
