Almost Everything Gift Planners Need to Know About Income Taxes
This program will cover the most important income tax concepts, vocabulary and strategies that gift planners need to know. Emphasis will be on individual taxation, but the session will also cover income taxation of trusts, estates and businesses. This program goes beyond the charitable giving tax rules and provides important background on areas that affect gift planning, directly or indirectly. What are the four basic strategies for reducing income taxes – and how all may be used in charitable gift planning? How do depreciation deductions affect a donor’s gift of a building? What determines whether business owners should make gifts personally or through their businesses? Gift planners don’t have to be tax attorneys to be effective in working with donors, but they do need to be "tax literate" – to know the basics of federal income taxes, so they can recognize and understand donors’ tax problems – and tax-saving opportunities available through gift planning. Attending this session will assist attendees to become more comfortable in speaking with donors and advisers about tax problems, and may even help planners reduce their own taxes!
