Stocks and securities
Donations of appreciated stocks and securities are generally tax-deductible, both the stock’s original purchase cost as well as any “paper gain.” You may also be entitled to capital gains relief. If you own investments that are worth less than they originally cost, consider selling and making a charitable gift of the proceeds. This will result in a “financial loss” that you may be able to deduct from other taxable income.
At the time of death, qualified retirement plan assets may be subjected to both estate and deferred income tax, which combined can use up most of the funds. You can designate Blue Ridge Hospice as a tax-free beneficiary of the remainder of your IRA, tax-sheltered annuity, qualified pension or profit-sharing plan.
This information does not constitute tax advice. Consult your tax and/or financial advisor for information regarding the tax implications of legacy gifts to Blue Ridge Hospice.
