Do you have property that you would like to sell? Are you looking for a strategy to reduce your income taxes? A bargain sale might be the right strategy for you.
Benefits of a bargain sale
Avoid capital gains tax on your charitable gift
Receive a tax deduction that will reduce your tax bill this year
Take the cash received from the sale and reinvest it to create future income, save for retirement, buy new property or achieve other financial goals
Help The The Citadel Foundation further its mission
How a bargain sale works
You sell The Citadel Foundation your property for a price less than fair market value.
You receive cash from the sale.
You can take a charitable deduction for the value of your gift which is the difference between the fair market value of the property less the sale price.
While you may owe some tax on the sale proceeds you receive from The Citadel Foundation, the charitable deduction from your gift could offset some, most or all of your capital gains taxes associated with the sale.
More on bargain sales
A bargain sale may be accomplished even if you have a mortgage on your property. Because relief from indebtedness can have tax implications, please consult with your tax advisor prior to completing a gift of a bargain sale.
If you have any questions about a bargain sale, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions you might have.
With a documented planned gift donation of $25,000 and above, you are eligible for induction into The Citadel Legacy Society, which takes place at our annual Leaders in Philanthropy weekend each fall. You will join a group of your peers who take pride in being members of The Citadel family of supporters. Induction takes place the year following the year of your gift.
