Thinking about making the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from their retirement account at the end of the calendar year? Did you know that you may be able to avoid taxes on the RMD or other distributions? A Qualified Charitable Distribution moves money directly from your retirement account to a charity (like BAHS) with no taxes due. Check with your tax adviser to see if this could work for you.
