Looking for a way to give to Trinity that helps with our mission and you with your taxes? Consider giving appreciated stock – if you've owned the stock for more than one year and itemize deductions, you can generally deduct the full market value without reporting any of the appreciation as taxable income. Assume stock you paid $2,000 for several years ago is now worth $10,000. If you give it all to Trinity , you're probably entitled to a $10,000 Charitable Deduction. In the 28% tax bracket, you'll save $2,800 in taxes. Compare that with selling the stock and giving the cash – you're subject to a capital gains tax on the $8,000 profit.Read more...
