IRD Basics & Best Practices

What is income in respect of decedent or “IRD”? It’s a long phrase that can invoke trepidation. It’s simply income that has not yet been taxed to a deceased person. In this session we will go over the basic background that you need to know about this type of income, planning opportunities, rules you want to know and best practices for charitable planning with these assets.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the basic types of IRD
  2. Understand the rules that apply to IRD
  3. Identify planning opportunities with IRD


Dana Holt JD, RICP, AEP

I am a gift planning guru, yoga enthusiast, and greyhound mom. I use my twenty years of experience in financial, estate, and gift planning to help charities, families, and professional advisors turn assets into the very best charitable gifts.

Only about 10% of America's wealth is held in cash. It's true - only 10% is hanging out in our checking and savings accounts. The rest of our wealth happily spends its days living as things like real estate, life insurance, retirement accounts, and other interesting assets.

If that's where the real money is, then why do charities constantly "chase the checkbook" for donations? Why do donors focus on giving from their checking accounts when the other 90% is just sitting there waiting to be shared for the benefit of life-changing causes?

I'll tell you why. It's because until now charitable gift planning has been a mysterious blend of tax wizardry, voodoo, and legalese. I'm here to de-mystify it for you.

I will teach you how to unlock that other 90% for the benefit of your favorite charitable works. Together, we will turn wealth into what matters.
