Real Estate

Gifts of real estate can provide both a tax deduction for you as well an important support for Rocky Mountain PBS. Your primary home, a vacation home, farm, or commercial property can relieve you of property taxes, provide a tax deduction, and give you the satisfaction of supporting Rocky Mountain PBS in a substantial way. Rental properties and time shares are not accepted by Rocky Mountain PBS.

Retained Life Estate

Federal tax law allows the donation of a personal residence (to include a vacation home) or farm with the donor retaining the right to life enjoyment. This called a retained life estate. A life estate may be retained for one or more lives (passed down through family) or it may be retained for a term of years. All routine expenses, maintenance fees, property taxes, repairs, etc – are the responsibility of the donor. The donor receives income tax benefits in the year of the gift as well as estate tax benefits. This is an irrevocable gift.

Tax Identification number: 84-0510785
