Strong stock returns and higher tax rates make donating
appreciated securities to Janus Youth Programs an attractive tax-saving
move. When you donate an appreciated security, you will avoid paying the
capital gain on the sale. Additionally, the gifted stock allows you to
deduct the value of the donation on your tax return. The general rule is
that the deduction for property donated to charity is equal to the fair market
value of the donated gift. As a result, the donor does not have to
“recognize” the gain on the gift for tax purposes.
Talk with your broker and they can help you decide which
security to donate to Janus’ donor account at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. When making a stock transfer, let Rosalie Karp, Janus’ Advancement
Director, know so she can assure you receive a receipt for your donation. She can be reached at (503) 542-4605.
