GIFTS OF STOCK

LIFE INCOME GIFTS

BEQUESTS

If you own stock, it is almost always more tax-wise to contribute stock than cash.

 

This is because a gift of appreciated stock generally offers a two-fold tax saving. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock. Second, you receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.

 

Make sure you have owned the stock for a “long-term” period of time (this generally means that you have held the stock for more than one year) to qualify for these significant tax advantages. Your gift stock should be postmarked by December 31. In the alternative, a stock broker or trust officer can arrange for a year-end gift of stock from your account.

A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage, or vacant lot may have so appreciated in value through the years that its sale would mean a sizeable capital gains tax. By making a year-end gift of this property instead, you would avoid the capital gains tax, and, at the same time, receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.

 

It is also possible to make a gift of your home, farm, or vacation home so that you and your spouse can continue to use it for your lifetimes – while you receive a tax deduction. Please give us a call for details.

If you are considering a major gift, a “life income” gift may be an excellent year-end gift. Such a gift can increase your own income!

 

You could transfer cash or stock to us and establish a “charitable remainder unitrust” or charitable remainder annuity trust” that would provide you with 5% or greater annual return. This income would be paid to you and/or a loved one for life, after which the assets would be distributed to us. Through such an arrangement, you would be increasing you income and making a meaningful (and tax-deductible) contribution to us at the same time.

While you’re considering tax savings, this may also be a good time to consider long-term tax savings. The federal estate tax can still take approximately 40% to 50% of one’s estate at the time of death. That’s a higher tax bite than the income tax! It definitely pays to do some advance planning with your attorney and other professional advisors.

 

We hope you will consider a charitable bequest in your will – to benefit us while you save estate tax dollars at the same time.
