Time to sell? If you do, you might have to pay capital gains taxes. There's a better option that provides you with valuable tax incentives as well as the satisfaction of supporting a cause close to your heart: Give your stock to MSK to help advance our innovative research. When you give us appreciated securities that you've owned for more than one year, you may receive two tax benefits: 1 You may be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the current fair market value of the securities, regardless of their lower original cost. 2 You will be exempt from paying capital gains taxes on any increase in value—taxes you would have to pay if you sold the stock. Contact our Planned Giving staff to complete your gift. Reflecting on the Future | Fall 2018 Your Stocks Can Save a Life Radiation therapist Kaitlyn Ryan
