Tax-Smart Charitable Giving, Especially with Retirement Assets

with Professor Chris Hoyt, JD

Join us virtually for the 2022 Professional Advisor Continuing Education event: Tax-Smart Charitable Giving, Especially with Retirement Assets.

In this exciting presentation, Professor Chris Hoyt will discuss charitable giving and retirement assets. He will explore why it has become more challenging to receive tax benefits from charitable gifts after 2017 as well as the benefits of donor-advised funds, qualified charitable contributions, tax-exempt charitable remainder trusts and more. You will learn to help your clients and grow your practice using charitable planning with special retirement tips.

Key Take-Aways:

  • Discover why it has become more challenging to receive tax benefits from charitable gifts after 2017
  • Review donor-advised funds and the strategy of “bunching” gifts
  • Learn why charitable gifts of appreciated stock are usually better than cash

  • Go over the tax hazard to avoid: IRA deposits after age 70 ½ affect QCD benefits
  • Learn about inherited IRAs and the explanation of new laws for ten-year liquidation
  • Review exceptions to when distributions can be made over more than ten years
