Donate securities to charity (and be a bit of a tax Scrooge)
Posted by Lynne Butler
You may have heard that there are tax advantages to giving to charity, particularly if you want to give shares and securities, but do you really understand how it works? Do you know whether it might work for you? I'm attaching a link to an excellent article in the Globe and Mail by Tim Cestnick that really explains it well. Click here to read it. Although the article talks about charitable giving while you're alive, the same tax principles apply to giving to charities through your will.
