Interest from US donors to be philanthropic to causes overseas is picking up steam. This is often happening without the knowledge that there are ways to do this in a manner that incorporates due diligence and tax benefits. In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Jonathan Gassman, CPA/PFS, Rick Peck (NH Charitable Foundation), and Brooks Reid (CAF America) walk CPA advisors through what they need to be considering with their relevant clients. They answer the following questions:
What are the 3 main considerations in cross border giving?
How do you receive a tax deduction when donating outside the US?
What due diligence needs to be done to make sure the charity is on the up and up?
Are there resources to make this process more seamless for CPA advisors and their clients?
