Giving Real Estate

“I spend more time woodworking than I should. That’s what I’m trying to overcome. Maybe I should spend more time smelling the roses.”

Real Property

A gift of real property can include personal residences, vacation homes, rental property and farmland. You have a number of options for making a gift of real property to Greater Dayton Public Television:

  • You can make an outright gift and claim a tax deduction.
  • You can give later through a gift in your will or revocable living trust.
  • You can deed the remainder interest of your personal residence to Greater Dayton Public Television, retain the right to remain in the home for life and receive a tax deduction.

Through a gift of real property, you can perhaps make a much larger gift than you otherwise thought possible, avoid income and estate taxes, and minimize or eliminate burdens placed on your loved ones.
