I made a qualified charitable distribution from my IRA. Can I take a charitable contribution deduction?

No. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) up to $100,000 from an IRA by those age 70½ or older is not includible in gross income and it counts toward required minimum distributions (RMDs) you would otherwise have to receive. However, no deduction can be claimed for the amount going to charity.
