If you itemize your tax return, you are entitled to a charitable income-tax deduction for the full value of your gift, provided you have owned the securities for more than 12 months.
You avoid paying a tax on capital gains that you would owe if you sold the securities. Gifts of securities are deductible for federal tax purposes up to a limit of 30% of your adjusted gross income.
