Holiday season is a great time of year to discuss philanthropic intent with your clients. This brings together the year-end planning opportunity to maximize tax deductions and the time of year to have purposeful conversations with family on causes that matter. In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, JG Gassman, CPA/PFS, and Rick Peck share ideas to consider with your clients as the end of the year approaches, including:
A smarter way to give than writing checks
Using a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) to receive the charitable deduction while also giving breathing room to make decisions on where to give
Using charitable donation strategies to offset taxable income
Connecting the private foundation to a DAF to make the 5% annual requirement more effective
The philanthropic approach to minimizing tax on Roth conversions in a down market
