Gifts of appreciated property (stocks, real estate, mutual funds, jewelry, artwork, collectibles, etc.) can bring significant tax advantages. Real estate can be transferred to the church for a tax credit based on appraisal and eventual sale price. Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can be transferred to the church without incurring capital gains taxes on the assets. You may have many kinds of stored resources that God has blessed you with in the past that He just might be calling you to give out of during this time. Please consult with a professional advisor for advice in your particular circumstance. Contact our church office at email@example.com if you need assistance with gifts of property or stock. We would be happy to help.
