Reduce or Eliminate Income Taxes, Capital Gains Taxes, and Estate Taxes

Charitable Planning Makes it Possible

The foundation of this incredible financial planning opportunity lies in its benefit to the most noble of organizations - charities.  By participating in this planning opportunity, one can benefit charitable causes that help the most needy in our world.

 
 
I ask all of my affluent clients if they are charitable, and more often than not, they say, “No.”

Then, I point out that they are actually very charitable, because they give to the IRS every year! Instead of letting Congress decide how to spend your money, why don’t you personally direct it to your favorite charities?

Income taxes, capital gains taxes, and estate taxes can all be either reduced or eliminated by participating in charitable planning. Let us show you how.

Hypothetical Case Study

In the hypothetical scenario illustrated below, $250,000 taxable Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is reduced to $100,000 by contributing to a charitable plan that allows a $150,000 charitable tax deduction. 

 
 

60% Deduction to Taxable AGI

 
 

This deduction to taxable AGI brings this hypothetical family from the 28% bracket to the 25% bracket (married filing jointly), and reduces the amount of Federal Income Taxes paid by approximately 79.5%!

 
 

79.5% Reduction to Federal Income Taxes Paid

 
 

In addition to these tax benefits, many charitable plans allow the donor to retain income rights for a set numbers of years or even over multiple generations.

The results: 

Empowerment of deserving charities, an estimated 79.5% reduction to the amount of Federal Income Taxes paid, and a potentially multi-generational source of income!

The benefits could be even greater if a highly appreciated asset is contributed to a charitable plan (e.g. a building or a stock portfolio).  In most cases, you get to eliminate the capital gains tax on the contributed asset on top of the benefits listed above!
