Conserving Long Islands Working Farms and Natural Lands

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities benefit the donor in two ways:

1) the full-market value of the securities is tax-deductible and

2) if the securities have appreciated in value, capital gains taxation may be avoided. In the case of appreciated securities, the donor’s deduction is limited to 30% of adjusted gross income (AGI), instead of the 50% limit allowed for cash gifts.

Consult your tax advisor and broker regarding the tax-deductibility and timing of your gift.
