  • Focus on finance: Need a tax deduction now? Set up a charitable remainder trust

    If you are in one of the higher tax brackets and seek a substantial tax deduction now, you may want to consider establishing a charitable remainder trust. This is an arrangement that can allow you to gift a highly appreciated asset to a charity of your choice. Then the charity can sell the asset and pay no taxes on the sale. This means both an immediate tax deduction for you based on the value of the item donated, and an additional tax savings from not having realized the capital gain on the sale of the asset.
