You will receive a charitable tax deduction for your gift – and avoid capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated property. If you prefer to retain your property now, you can also give tangible personal property later through your will or living trust.

If the federal charitable tax deduction claimed for a gift of personal property exceeds $5,000, you must obtain an appraisal from a qualified appraiser and submit a special IRS form with the tax return on which the deduction is claimed.
