Abstract

In general, a decedent’s estate is allowed a charitable deduction for the fair market value of property passing from the estate to a charitable organization. Limited interests in property passing to a charity have not been deductible under the federal estate tax charitable deduction if accompanied by a non-charitable interest. A 2016 Tax Court case recently affirmed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals involved the passing of the decedent’s entire interest in family corporation stock to a trust and focused on the issue of whether the post-death activities of the trustee and corporation affected the value of the stock for purposes of the estate tax charitable deduction.
