Gifts of Stock

Giving appreciated stocks immediately adds a tax advantage over making the same gift in cash.

The income-tax benefit is identical to that of cash: the donor can deduct the fair market value of the gift. Giving stocks and mutual funds, however, provides that the long-term capital gain (LTCG) is not recognized on their tax return, so the donor avoids any LTCG tax due on the appreciation.
