Tax Smart Charitable Giving with Professor Christopher Hoyt
As peer partners of the Hawaii Gift Planning Council, the Hawaii Estate Planning Council and the Hawaii Community Foundation graciously offered our members and friends an invitation to attend a virtual presentation on Tax Smart Charitable Giving featuring Christopher Hoyt. Please find the details and link to register below. CE, CFP and CFRE credits available for this presentation
Professor Hoyt will examine the challenges of getting tax savings from charitable gifts since the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and will describe strategies that can generate tax savings, including “bunching” gifts with donor advised funds and making qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from IRAs. In addition, Professor Hoyt will illustrate situations when a family can be better off naming a charitable remainder trust as a beneficiary of a retirement account, and when it is better to simply name individuals as beneficiaries.
