Charitable Gift Annuity
Jonathan's home has appreciated substantially over the years and is now worth $420,000. Jonathan has decided to sell his home and move to a retirement community. However, he recognizes that even after using his $250,000 home exclusion, he will still face high capital gain tax from the sale of the property. Jonathan called his favorite charity and discovered that he could transfer his home in exchange for a large fixed annuity payment, based upon his age. He avoided tax on the same of his home and was able to receive a large annuity payment for his retirement. Best of all, because the payment was fixed, he did not have to worry about market fluctuations. Now, he can soend as much time with his grandchildren as he wants!
