Gift of Stock

Making a gift of appreciated stock to HPR rather than simply writing a check can offer tax benefits that are twofold:

  • You may be able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the stock.
  • You receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.

To make a gift of stock to HPR, please provide your financial advisor with this information:

Merrill Lynch Account Number: 145-04B77
Depository Trust Corporation (DTC): 5198
Federal Tax ID#: 51-0191809
