Gifts of Appreciated Property

Charitable gifts of appreciated property that you have held for more than one year  (long-term capital gain property), such as investments  and real estate, can be deducted up to 30% of your adjusted  gross income.  If the property is held for less than one year (short-term capital gain property), than the deduction is limited to the lesser of its fair market value or your “basis” in the property.  This is generally the amount you paid for the property.  As you can see, it is usually better to make charitable gifts of long-term, rather than short-term, capital gain property.  If you’ve held the property for at least one year and then donate it to JBWS, you will receive a deduction for the full fair market value of the property, regardless of how little you may have originally paid for it.
