Small window of opportunity for IRA charitable rollover

Got IRA?  Read on... Congress has passed a last-minute tax break on charitable donations from IRAs for those over 70-1/2. The move restores the ability to donate up to $100,000 to a qualifying charity directly from an IRA without including the transfer in taxable income for 2014. The transfer can also count as the account holder's required minimum distribution, and it potentially can keep taxable income under threshold limits for Medicare means testing, among other provisions.
