Charity gifts directly from TSP possible?


Q. With the new tax law regulations making it not as beneficial to donate to charity due to not as many people itemizing their deductions, is it possible to directly move money from the TSP to a charity to avoid the tax and enhance the gift to the charity?

A. This is not allowed under the current rules, but you may be able to move money from your TSP account to an IRA account and then to a charity.
