The contribution deduction for stocks and bonds held long-term (held 12 months or more), is the mean between the highest and lowest selling prices on the date of the gift where there is a market for listed securities. The contribution deduction is limited to cost for securities held short-term.
An individual taxpayer plans to make a gift of $US 50,000 to a college. To provide the capital, the taxpayer planned to sell stock that had cost $US 20,000 some years earlier yielding a long-term capital gain of $US 30,000. The taxpayer decides to donate the stock itself instead of the proceeds of its sale. The taxpayer receives a contribution deduction of $US 50,000 and the unrealized gain on the stock is not taxable. By contributing the stock, the taxpayer's taxable income is $US 30,000 less than if the stock were sold.
