Donate your IRA distributions to charity tax free. Retirees typically need to pay income tax on withdrawals from traditional retirement accounts. However, retirees ages 70 1/2 or older who directly transfer their IRA withdrawals of up to $100,000 to a qualified charity will not owe income tax on the distribution. Consult with your accountant.
