Give to JGI from your IRA before Dec. 31 and Avoid Income Tax on the Distribution

The provision in the tax law that allows taxpayers aged 70 1/2 and older to make distributions directly to a charity of up to $100,000 from their traditional and Roth IRAs and avoid income tax on the distribution is scheduled to expire on December 31 this year.  This may be the last year to make these gifts without incurring income tax on the withdrawal.  (The gift avoids federal income tax but state income tax may still apply.)
