CHARITABLE PLANNING MISTAKES

RAMSAY SLUGG

Sponsored by Merrill Lynch – The Maynard Group

 

Americans are the most philanthropic people in the world.  Almost 2/3 give every year, and almost all High Net Worth individuals contribute to charity each year.  Most gifts are made with cash or marketable securities, which are “easy” to make and “easy” for the charity to accept.  However, as donors move away from cash and marketable securities, and as forms of compensation and investments have become more complicated, the room for error on the part of both the donor and the charity has increased.  It is imperative to understand both the asset being donated, and which set of income tax charitable deduction tax rules apply, to avoid Charitable Planning Mistakes. Ramsay H. Slugg is a Managing Director and member of the National Wealth Planning Strategies Group at U.S. Trust.  Mr. Slugg has also served as an adjunct professor at Texas Christian University and Texas A&M College of Law.  He is a frequent speaker on tax and financial planning topics, especially as they relate to art and collectibles, and is frequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, Barron’s and other business publications.  He is the author of the Handbook of Practical Planning for Art Collectors and Their Advisors, published by the American Bar Association’s Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law. Mr. Slugg is admitted to practice law in Texas, is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the American, and Tarrant County Bar Associations, the Tax and Estate Planning Section of the Tarrant County Bar, the Lone Star Chapter of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning, and the College of the State Bar of Texas.
