Are QCDs allowed in 2020?

QCDs and the RMD Waiver

One of the provisions of the CARES Act was the waiver of virtually all RMD requirements for 2020. QCDs are still allowed, however. So any IRA distributions within the $100,000 limit can still be treated as a QCD with the advantage of the withdrawal not being subject to taxes.
