I’m 73 years old and transferred money from my IRA directly to a public charity. The amount of the transfer covered my required minimum distribution. Where do I report this?

If the distribution is a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), enter the total distribution on line 15a of Form 1040. Then, if the total amount distributed is a QCD, enter -0- on line 15b. If only part of the distribution is a QCD, enter the part that is not a QCD on line 15b, assuming that the IRA was funded entirely with deductible contributions. Enter “QCD” next to line 15b.
