BGPenhollo: "Charitable ContributionsIf already donating money to a charitable organization consider donating appreciated stock instead. The charity pays no tax on the appreciation and you get to take the stepped up basis as a tax deduction."I believe that the statement above is only true with respect to stock that has been owned for more than one year; please double check this advice before following it. If the donated stock has been held less than one year, then I believe that the deduction is limited to the basis of the donor (assuming appreciate stock).Regards, JAFO
