All CPAs serving clients with charitable intentions need to know what entities and assets can be used to provide the best possible tax results while simultaneously helping charitable and family causes. Mutually beneficial arrangements are certainly available, and we can all enjoy doing good by doing well.

  • Recognize to what extent a donor or family members can retain possession and control of artwork and collectibles that have been donated to charity

  • Identify how to handle appreciated and depreciated real estate, rental arrangements, and debt-financed assets

  • Determine how to give part ownership of a business entity to charity without surrendering voting control

  • Determine how a charity can make appropriate use of an asset to assure deductibility based upon fair market value and not basis
