Summary

There are more than three million Subchapter S corporations in the United States with nearly six million shareholders. These corporations and shareholders can be major sources of charitable gifts, but there are technical tax laws that can turn a mistake in the gift transaction into a severe financial cost to the corporation, its shareholders and even to a charity that receives a gift. What are these laws? How does a charity evaluate whether the economic and tax benefits from the gift will exceed its costs? When can a CGA be safely issued for a gift of S corporation stock? This session addresses these questions.
