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.
