Budget Benefits Stock Donations
The 2006 Federal budget greatly improved the tax situation for donations of stocks and securities to charities. Selling appreciated stocks or securities results in capital gains tax being payable. Since 1997 the capital gains tax was reduced by 50% if the security was donated to a charity. Under the provisions of the 2006 budget, the capital gains tax is now reduced to zero! Canadians who donate stock to their favourite charity will now pay no capital gains tax on the growth of those shares and will get a tax receipt for the full value of the shares.
Many Canadian residents hold shares of demutualized insurance companies and a telephone utility company as well as other securities with large accumulated capital gains. By donating these to their favourite charity, they can not only benefit the charity but avoid all capital gains tax which otherwise will be owing on the sale of the shares or the death of the owner.
Talk to your lawyer, financial planner or accountant about how you can donate your appreciated shares to your favourite charity and make a difference in lives that follow.
