IRA Required Minimum Distribution

Your required minimum distribution is the minimum amount you must withdraw from your retirement account each year. You generally have to start taking withdrawals from your IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA, or retirement plan account when you reach age 70.

Some people donate their Required Minimum Distribution to a 501 (c) (3) charity like the Friends of the Grand County Library. If the money is donated directly to the charity you avoid paying taxes on that part of the distribution.

The check from your financial institution must be made out to "Friends of the Grand County Library, Inc." It can either be mailed to you or directly to the friends.

The address is:
Friends of The Grand County Library
PO Box 1050
Granby, CO 80446
