IRA Charitable Rollovers

If you are required to take a mandatory minimum distribution from an IRA in 2014, please consider making a direct rollover to Mystic Seaport as a charitable donation. In recent years, Congress has allowed donors to transfer (or “rollover”) money from their IRAs directly to charity, without having to recognize the transfer as income. The IRA charitable rollover tax benefit expired on December 31, 2013 and is currently not applicable. We hope that Congress reinstates the law for 2014 and beyond. Please consult with your attorney or tax advisor for their professional advice based on your complete financial picture.
