Stock & Securities
Publically traded stocks and securities are great assets to give. Easy to transfer, donating appreciated securities before they’re sold can result in a tax benefit for you.
Tax deductions are based on the market value at the time of the gift. Since the deduction is based on current value rather than cost, no tax is paid on the appreciation.
