Do you have appreciated stock in your portfolio? Would you like to make a tax advantaged donation to GO Campaign?
If you donate stock directly to GO Campaign, you bypass the capital gain tax and receive a tax deduction for 100% of the value of the stock. By selling the stock, you will pay approximately 30% in taxes on the appreciation, leaving only 70% for a tax deductible donation. What's more? You can also save by avoiding the federal Medicare surtax of $3.8% based on your income.
If you have held a security for 12 months or longer, you can donate stock to GO Campaign and receive an IRS donation receipt at full market value.
Donating stock is tax efficient and easy!
