The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) Takes Effect January 2024

With a Donor Advised Fund, you can take advantage of 2023 tax rates on appreciated securities, and decide later what charities you want to support.

If you have appreciated securities there are big changes coming in January 2024, that will make donating them to a registered charity less favourable for the donor.

Effective January 1, 2024, the calculation of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) for Individual taxpayers will include 100% of capital gains on donations of publicly traded securities up from the current 50%. Also, only 50% of the donation tax credit will be deducted in calculating AMT, down from the current 100%.
