Connecting with Donors: Practical Pointers on Charitable Contributions at Year-End 2013

Tuesday, November 19, 2013
01:00-2:30 pm ET
(12:00 am CT, 11:00 am MT, 10:00 am PT)



This down-to-earth program will help you "connect" with your clients by giving them sound advice on lifetime charitable contributions. Designed for those who are not specialists in the income tax aspects of philanthropy, the presentation offers a broad overview of considerations and vehicles for charitable giving - from discerning the donor's intent to evaluating a gift agreement, from simple gifts of long-term appreciated stock to complex vehicles such as charitable remainder trusts.

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.

Featured Product Federal Gift, Estate, and Generation-Skipping Transfer Taxation of Life Insurance, Third Edition



Lawrence Brody, Norman H. Lane, Mary Ann Mancini

This volume in the popular Insurance Counselor series will help you take full advantage of minimizing the transfer taxation of the estate plan as well as avoid the many pitfalls that can arise.

The first chapter deals with life insurance as a gift, informing you about the valuation of policies and their qualification for the gift tax annual exclusion.

Further issues discussed in the second chapter are the gift tax, including consideration of cases when a gift occurs with respect to a life insurance policy, the valuation of the gift, and the availability of the gift tax annual exclusion and the gift tax charitable or marital deduction.

The third chapter deals with the estate taxation of life insurance, with emphasis on the two IRC sections that have particular application to life insurance: sections 2035 and 2042.

The fourth chapter discusses the generation-skipping transfer tax and its application to life insurance and irrevocable life insurance trusts, while the final chapter specifically addresses important community property considerations.
