Gifts of Appreciated Property

Gifts of appreciated property can allow you to save on taxes in three ways:

  • Through the charitable deduction for the market value at the time the gift is made
  • The avoidance of capital gains tax
  • The removal of the asset from your estate while providing the Shakespeare Theatre Company with the full market value as of the date of the gift.
