Learn tips to prevent suffering the consequences of incorrectly structured donations.
Planning that includes charitable contributions is a worthy goal and will serve the philanthropic interests of many clients. However, failure to meet requirements for the charitable deduction could result in no income tax deduction for the client, imposition of gift tax, and in some cases, even a penalty. For income tax deduction, make sure the distribution or set aside for charity is required or permitted under the terms of the governing instrument. This video reviews pitfalls to avoid with reporting requirements, unforeseen transfer tax, and issues with charitable gifts from estates and trusts.
