As the economy continues to recover, our assets grow. At the same time, it seems as though taxes become more and more of an issue. Charitable Giving is starting to become an attractive estate planning option once more, especially as a way to avoid or minimize potential tax liabilities such as capital gains tax or estate taxes. Additionally, it provides a great way to create a meaningful legacy with a deserving charity.
I must admit that I am not the most impartial in this matter because I personally work with some incredible charities, such as Make-A-Wish Foundation and Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation. Our firm also works with many other charities throughout Arizona and New Mexico. The benefit here is two fold: Not only do you and your family benefit financially, you also benefit from seeing the good that your donation brings into the lives of others!
When you sit back and think about how best to help your family, make it a point to schedule a consultation with an estate planning attorney. You might be surprised just how much our firm can do to help you and your loved ones.
