SALE AND UNITURST

Are your appreciated assets, such as stock, bonds or real estate, producing little or no income?

If you sell your appreciated assets, you will pay a large capital gains tax. A sale and charitable remainder unitrust may be the solution to avoid capital gains tax.

BENEFITS OF A SALE AND UNITRUST

Receive cash from the sale. You can use this cash to purchase another residence, to save for retirement, to travel, to meet your daily needs or to meet some other financial goal

Receive income from the unitrust for the rest of your life and future retirement

Obtain an income tax deduction that may reduce your tax bill this year

HOW A SALE AND UNITRUST WORKS

  1. You establish a charitable remainder unitrust and transfer a portion of your assets to the trust.
  2. The assets are then sold. You receive cash from the sale, and the rest of the sale’s proceeds are paid to the charitable unitrust.
  3. The trust will provide you with income for the rest of your life.
  4. You receive a charitable deduction this year to offset your tax on the cash proceeds that you receive from the sale.

MORE ON SALE AND UNITRUST

When transferring a portion of your primary residence to fund a unitrust, you may apply your one-time home exclusion to reduce or eliminate capital gains tax that would otherwise be due from the sale. Your tax advisor can assist you to determine if you should utilize this strategy.
