CHARITABLE PLANNING

Charitable planning is a tool to provide gifts to a cause or charity, while receiving a tax advantage. To make the most of a charitable gift and obtain a tax benefit, it is essential for any charitable gifts to be part of a complete estate plan.

In Nevada and Idaho, you may utilize various types of planning tools, but if not drafted correctly may lead to a large portion of your gift to not gain the tax benefit the law allows.

Callister Law can work with you to understand and successfully utilize planning tools such as a Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) or Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT).
