Have stock that has appreciated or gone up in value over the past several years?  You may gift the stock, take a deduction for the full current value of the stock, and yet avoid all capital gains.  And, if you still like the stock, repurchase it with cash and raise your cost basis after avoiding taxes.  To learn more about this simple yet incredibly tax-efficient gifting strategy to advance God’s work, contact Jimmy Johnson at 509.242.0474 in the UCC Trust Department.
