For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2016, this bill adopts, for state
income and franchise tax purposes, a provision of the Internal Revenue Code
allowing an individual to make a tax-free distribution from his or her individual
retirement account directly to a qualified charitable organization, as defined under
Under federal law, the maximum amount that may be distributed tax-free is
$100,000, and the distribution must occur on or after the date on which the
individual on whose behalf the IRA is maintained reaches the age of 70 1/2 years.
Because this bill relates to an exemption from state or local taxes, it may be
referred to the Joint Survey Committee on Tax Exemptions for a report to be printed
