Donations of Securities

If you're Canadian and paying capital gains taxes, you're probably well aware that you can now donate publicly listed securities to public charities without incurring any capital gains tax. Or, if your security value has depreciated and you are thinking of disposing of it, consider donating the cash proceeds to JF&CS.  You’ll receive a tax credit of approximately 46% that you can use against other income. The capital loss on the securities can be carried back three years or carried forward indefinitely to offset any capital gains and reduce your income taxes.
