Devotion on Joyful Giving
If you are over 70-1/2 years old and have an Individual Retirement Account, you can make tax exempt donations to Straight Ahead Ministries directly form your IRA thanks to the Pension Protection Act of 2006. Under this law, gifts up to $100,000 are not taxed as ordinary income when withdrawn and paid directly from the IRA to Straight Ahead Ministries.
Such gifts are counted toward the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) if made before December 31, 2007. Because the IRA distribution does not increase your Adjusted Gross Income, your state taxes also may be reduced.
