I gave shares of Intel stock to my church last year. I want to give the rest of my Intel stock later this year. I still want to own Intel, but in my IRA account, so I am going to buy some more some time this year. Does the wash sale rule apply when I am giving away the stock, or just when I sell it? Is there anything special I need to watch out for?

Thanks for your help.
