Instead of cash donations to Cameron House, how about gifting stocks? If you have stocks that you’ve owned for at least one year – and they’ve appreciated in value – you can help Cameron House while reaping some wonderful benefits!
Here’s how it works:
If you gift cash, e.g. $5,000, you will only be able to get a $5,000 itemized deduction on your taxes.
However, if you gift $5,000 worth of stocks, you will get a $5,000 itemized tax deduction and you will avoid paying capital gains tax on that stock!
Let’s say you have 59 shares of Facebook stock that you purchased in January of 2015. If the current market value of Facebook stock is $175 per share, but you purchased them for $80, the appreciated value would be $95 per share (or $5,605 for 59 shares).
By gifting your 59 shares to Cameron House, you would not only get a $5,605 itemized tax deduction, you would also avoid paying $1,362 in Federal Long Term Capital Gains tax (15%) and State tax (9.30%)! ($5,605 x 24.30% = $1,326)
