Planning on making charitable gifts in 2020 and want to be tax efficient when doing so? There are many ways but below are a few common options...
- Donating appreciated stock - allows you to avoid paying capital gains while reducing your stock allocation and receiving a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the security donated.
- Bunch charitable deductions - defer donations to next year or make your planned 2021 donations ahead of time in 2020.
- Give to a private foundation or donor advised fund
- Make a qualified charitable distribution directly from your retirement account (including IRA’s) - this is a great way to reduce your tax bill if you are over 70.5 and do not need your full required minimum distribution
