Comment: If you have a retirement account (IRA etc.) and are 70 ½ years of age and being required to make minimum distributions (which are of course taxable to you), you can gift a portion or percentage to Ananda and not be subject to income tax if the distribution is made to and in the name of Ananda. (This gift will not be tax-deductible, however, but neither will it be taxable to you for having donated it to Ananda!)
