My understanding is that if you make the charity your beneficiary, there will be no taxes paid.Since the charity is tax-exempt, the beneficiary payment is therefore tax-exempt.As part of your estate planning you then leave the taxable assets to your other heirs who receive a stepped-up cost basis in those assets.It doesn't work for a gift during your lifetime. That would be considered a distribution to you made payable to the charitable organization.
