You can deduct the current value of donated stock and avoid paying capital gains taxes. Transferring shares to SBMT is easy:
- Contact your brokerage firm, bank, or investment advisor and let them know what shares you want to transfer. You may find the best tax savings come from stocks you bought at least a year ago and that have risen in value since.
- They’ll also need the details of our brokerage account: Ameriprise account #1678 6658, DTC number 0756.
- Please let us know what stock you’re gifting, the number of shares, and the date they should arrive. This is the only way we know whom the transfer is from.
- We’ll be sure to send you confirmation and an official thank you letter for your records.
