Is Pub 526 the best reference on donating appreciated stock to a charity ?

The benefit of donating appreciated stock is that I get to deduct the full market value of the stock but do not have to pay taxes on the long term capital gain. Is this correct ? This would not be true if the gain is short term ?


Yes on all fronts.
