When donating Real Property before one dies, a donor must decide whether they want to transfer all or only part of the property to Amazing Discoveries. These two options are discussed below.

Complete Transfer

Most donors gift the whole property when they have more than one house, like a rental or a second home. It could also be a commercial building or undeveloped land. This property is usually owned free and clear, and the donor transfers it to Amazing Discoveries to eliminate the Capital Gains tax and save them selling expenses. This type of transfer will also reduce their Income tax, by receiving a charitable deduction, and their Estate Tax, by removing the asset from their estate.

Partial Transfer

A lot of times when people retire they want to downsize. Maybe the home is getting too big to manage, or maybe it’s too expensive to maintain. Deciding to buy a smaller home, without all the expenses and stairs, can prove to be a wise decision.

The problem most people face is that their home has significantly gone up in value. While this may be a good thing, it also subjects them to capital gains tax on the amount of the increase.

Through a Partial Transfer, a donor can reduce or eliminate the capital gains tax, by donating part of the Real Estate to Amazing Discoveries. So, instead of paying taxes to the government, that money goes to further Amazing Discoveries ministry. Once a portion of the real estate is donated, both parties will sell the property together. Alternatively, the donor could sell his/her remaining portion to the charity. This could save the donor Capital Gains tax, Income tax and Estate tax, while also giving the donor the cash to buy a smaller home. If the donor wants to avoid Capital Gains taxes altogether, the donor should gift the amount of the real estate that makes the charitable deduction equal to the taxes owed on the sale. This is called a Zero Tax Bargain Sale.

Amazing Discoveries has affected my life in several ways regarding creationism as opposed to evolution. Being brought up Show more... in a Christian home I've always believed in creation but Prof. Veith's series gave me information of which I had not previously known. During the series of "Total Onslaught" again, there were answers to question I have for quite a long time. "Rekindling the Reformation" I also found very informative and also brought to light some of the other persons that were involved in the reformation and the ways in which their lives were brought to such tragic ends as a result of their biblical position. Thank you for work presenting God's word in it's fullness.

I know it has been a while since the last letter I wrote. I decided it was time Show more... to sit down, take time out to say, Thank You for all the labor, and persevering effort you guys put in to this ministry. You have forever impacted my life! I am overjoyed that you all stepped out in faith and allowed God to use you, in such a way as to touch so many souls. I am forever grateful to God, and you all, at Amazing Discoveries. I am only sixteen. I would not still be here today, had it not been for the Lord and his many servants! This is not an easy time to live in, especially for those who are young. Satan is always tempting all, old and young, rich and poor. Thanks be to God for His longsuffering, and forgiveness! Seeing the videos/sermons/lectures on AD bring not only me, but many others very much comfort. ...The road is not smooth but by His grace, I will carry on.
