Charitable Deduction for Estates and Trusts

Something to Consider Now for Yourself and Your Client

One of the major differences between the income taxation of an individual, on the one side, and an estate or trust, on the other, is how the deduction for transfers to charity works.  Almost always, an advantage can be obtained by having the deduction taken by an estate or trust rather than an individual. This presentation will go into the details for such a deduction and how it can be used now by almost all individuals.
