Giving gifts of appreciated investments from a taxable account offers a unique tax benefit; you are no longer subject to taxation on future dividend and you also avoid the capital gains tax you would’ve otherwise likely paid when you ultimately sold those appreciated shares.
If you are required to take a required minimum distribution from your IRA and you plan to give to charity, you might want to contribute to charity through your IRA to save on income taxes if you are over age 70 ½. Even if you don’t itemize deductions, you benefit from this strategy because it reduces your taxation income.
Establishing an annuity trust, a lead trust or a charitable remainder trust with CSOF gives you the opportunity to avoid capital gains taxes, and provides a stable source of income to you and/or your beneficiaries.
A carefully prepared estate plan or will is the best way to ensure that your loved ones are provided for after your death, and that your preferred charities are supported as you intended. Investors may add charities as primary or contingent beneficiaries on retirement accounts.
You can donate a life insurance policy to DOF or simply name the organization as the beneficiary. To make a significant future gift at a relatively low cost, you may do so through a new life insurance policy.
Personal property or real estate:
A gift of real estate may be a principal residence or vacation residence, a farm, a commercial building, subdivision lots or unimproved land. The gift may be the entire property or a fractional interest in the property
