Practical pointers include timely advice on:
- Impact of the new 3.8% surtax on choice of asset and charitable vehicle;
- Fundamentals of the income tax charitable deduction;
- Substantiation of the income tax charitable deduction, including appraisals;
- Gifts of property, whether stock, real estate or art;
- Matching assets with the appropriate charitable recipient; and
- The role of community foundations.
