Year End Tax Planning by Giving

Have you noticed that Christmas decorations are already prominently displayed in retail stores?  Each year, planning for the holidays seems to come earlier and earlier.  Some folks plan ahead and complete their holiday shopping well before Thanksgiving.  Others wait until the last minute to find those special treasures and bargains.

It is also the time of year when many consider how they can take stock of their accomplishments and assets accumulated over the past year. 

They also consider how they can best give back and at the same time, possibly receive a tax benefit or two. 

These end-of-year gifts could also come in handy in a few months when your taxes are due.


If you want to make a quick and easy gift that offers immediate charitable deduction, a gift of cash or stock could be a great option for you.  A gift of appreciated stock offers even more tax benefits because you can eliminate the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold your stock. 

An immediate gift allows your generous contribution to get straight to work making an impact on supporting and advancing the important ministry work at First Baptist of Gillette.


Thank You.
