Instead, a portion of your payments will be taxed as capital gain (provided that you are the primary annuitant and the annuity interest is assignable only to us). 3 ) Part of each annuity payment is tax-free. The tax-free portion of the annuity payment is considered "return of principal" and continues through the annuitant's estimated life expectancy. EXAMPLE Michael, 60, gives us $40,000 in appreciated stock that he has owned longer than one year in exchange for a deferred gift annuity that will begin making payments five years from now. His cost basis in the stock is $10,000. Using the suggested rates, Donald's deferred annuity will pay at an annual rate of 6.0 percent, or $2,400. His federal income tax charitable deduction will be approximately $15,562.* If Donald is in the 32 percent income tax bracket, this charitable deduction will result in a tax savings of $4,980. *Assumes annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances. Moving Forward We want to work with you to create a gift that best fits your circumstances and our needs.
