** Every retired person who has an IRA or other qualified plan must take an annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) each year from their plan. This distribution is taxable at ordinary income rates; however, the IRS now allows those persons to allocate any portion of their RMD up to a maximum of $100,000 annually to a qualified charity such as the CLTLC.
