· How much can I deduct for stock?
Please consult a tax advisor for your specific situation. Tax laws change frequently, and we do not provide tax or legal advice. For stock donations, you can usually deduct the fair market value of the gift at the time of the transfer.
· What are the benefits of donating stock and mutual funds?
Appreciated stock and mutual fund donations generally receive two key benefits: 1) a current-year tax deduction for the fair market value, and 2) no capital gains taxes paid on the sale. Please consult your tax advisor for information on how these benefits apply to your situation.
