Advantages of giving stock or securities

  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
  • Pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.

Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.
