What do you do with my stock donation?

When you donate stock one of two things will take place. Stocks with Causes will liquidate your asset and earmark the proceeds for the program of your choice. The second option; our charity retains the position in our portfolio until the most optimal time arrives to sell the particular security. Stocks with Causes has developed a streamlined program with all major brokerage firms in the nation. This unmatched network offers you, the donor, a safe and secure method for transferring your assets. Always remember the time and date of when the charity chooses to liquidate your stock, bond, or other asset, will not affect your deduction credit. Your tax consideration for your securities donation is based on the market price of the asset on the day the transfer to stocks with causes takes place.

Capital Gains Tax Method? Donation of stock = Zero Capital gains tax owed on that position.

The IRS leaves you with a choice. First option is to hold your investment beyond a year to qualify for the long term capital gains rate of 15%. If you can’t wait than expect Uncle Sam to consider any gains made, taxed as short term capital gains rate. For example if you are normally in the 25% tax bracket than your short term capital gains tax would be 25%. That is a huge chunk of your earnings!

There is a third option. If you donate stock rather than sell you will avoid all capital gains on that position. In many cases a stock donation can actually help increase the amount you are able to claim as a deduction. Cash often times carries a higher tax encumbrance than stocks as you probably already know..

What if your position did not make a gain, but rather has realized a loss. You can use that loss to offset the capital gains on other assets. The downside is that the IRS only allows you to deduct up to 3000 dollars in most cases when using this method. If you donate your portfolio holdings you are allowed to write off up to 50% of your taxable income per year. 50% is much better than $3000.
