Capital Gains Tax Bypassed

Capital Gains Tax Bypassed

Estella was nearing retirement. Over the years, with the help of her financial advisor, she made solid investments in securities and built a sizable portfolio. While her investments increased substantially in value, her potential capital gains tax bill was rising. Now with retirement on the horizon, she was looking for a way to sell her highly appreciated stock, generate income for her future and avoid paying high capital gains tax.

Estella: For many years I had supported the work of United Methodist Women. Through an e-mail I learned that I could make a gift of my appreciated stock to United Methodist Women and bypass the potential capital gains tax cost I was facing. I was thrilled to learn that after transferring my portfolio to a charitable remainder trust, the trust would sell the stock tax free. I liked the fact that the trust would provide me with income for my retirement years.

Estella decided to make a gift of her appreciated stock to establish a charitable remainder unitrust. She was thrilled at the prospect of creating future income while bypassing capital gains tax.

Estella: When I heard that in addition to the other benefits I would receive a charitable deduction for my gift, it was just icing on the cake! I wondered why everyone nearing retirement doesn't set up a charitable trust.
