Gifts of appreciated securities can have positive tax benefits. Currently, you pay no capital gains tax on any appreciated securities that are transferred directly to Avenidas. If you have held your stock for over one year, your tax deduction is based on the fair market value of the stock, not its cost basis. Of course, each person’s tax situation is different, so please contact your tax advisor.
