Other Ways to Give
Retirement Funds & The Cares Act
Extended for 2021, the CARES Act provides an opportunity for those 59½ or older to access unlimited funds from their IRA for gifting to a charity. If you are age 59½ or older and have accumulated a surplus in your IRA account – more than you will need for retirement – you can withdraw any amount from your IRA and gift those funds to any public charity and receive a charitable deduction of the entire amount of the gift.
Taylor accepts charitable gifts of stock. This may be a cost-effective way to make a gift of stock, owned for more than a year, receiving a fair market value charitable deduction and avoiding capital gains taxes.
Business owners can gift stock and/or units from their business and receive a full income tax deduction for the gift and then gift the tax savings.
Other Non-cash Assets
Non-Cash assets such as real estate, closely-held small business interests, paid up insurance policies, or other marketable assets.
Giving appreciated cryptocurrency may provide a tax deduction equal to the fair market value (as determined by a qualified appraisal) and avoid the capital gains tax if you were to sell the asset.
