Gift of Securities

How to Both Give AND Receive

It is never too early to do some serious tax planning. Along these lines, ask yourself two questions:

  1. Do you have an asset that has grown in value?
  2. Would the sale of this highly appreciated asset cost you significant capital gains taxes?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, are you aware that an alternative does exist that will give you a tax deduction, as well as avoid capital gains taxes? You could donate these assets to the National Museum of American Jewish Military History, receive a tax deduction for the present value, and avoid the capital gains taxes on the increased value. This way, you help yourself as well as assure the future of the National Museum of American Jewish Military History. You should consult a professional tax advisor as to how to carry out this tax-saving program.
