Like cash, gifts of appreciated stock provide an income tax deduction as permitted by law. Stocks and other securities also provide a secondary benefit by avoiding a capital gains tax, for most individuals.
For example, if you bought stock worth $1,000 in 2010 that has grown in value to $2,000, you would owe capital gains taxes on the appreciated amount ($1,000) when you sell the stock. If you donated the shares to Okizu, you would receive the tax deduction for the $2,000 as permitted by law, and you would also avoid paying taxes on the $1,000 that the stock has appreciated.
Please check with your CPA to see if you are eligible for this deduction.
Please call John Bell at 415.382.9083 or email email@example.com for additional information or if you have any questions.
