Talk to your financial advisor on how you might decrease taxes and benefit by:
- Donating the cash from the capital loss realized by selling depreciated securities that have declined in value below their cost.
- Avoid capital gains taxes by using the cash proceeds from a capital loss to offset the gain on the sale of appreciated assets to make a charitable gift.
- Eliminate taxation of ordinary income by donating the sale proceeds of appreciated securities, even though you would recognize a capital gain.
If you itemize your deductions, the CARE Act allows for cash contributions to qualified public charities like Boise Little Theater (not to a donor-advised fund or non-operating private foundations) to be deducted up to 100% of adjusted gross income (AGI)! Do you take the standard deduction? The CARES Act allows all taxpayers to take a charitable deduction of up to $300, even if they do not itemize, thus your AGI will be reduced by up to $300 -and you can still claim the standard deduction!
