New IRS 2010CM Mortality Table Throws a Curveball

We have learned something unexpected about the new 2010CM mortality table. 2010CM can in some situations produce a higher deduction than the 2000CM mortality table we’ve been using since 2009. This is an important realization, because the proposed regulations allow donors to compute their deductions using 2010CM or 2000CM until the IRS publishes final regulations.
