Real Estate

You may wish to make a current gift of all or a fractional interest in a personal residence, a vacation home, undeveloped land, or a commercial property.

Such gifts will entitle you to a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market of the property on the date of your gift, provided you have owned the home for more than one year, and will permit you to avoid capital gains tax on the transfer. To learn more, call (805) 879-8980.
