As the personal financial planner, you must have a clear understanding of the terminology associated with charitable giving and a broad knowledge of the charity "industry" to educate your clients and help them fulfill their altruistic desires while, at the same time, making taxβˆ’ and estate-wise decisions.

Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, this CPE course covers:

  • Charitable transfers
  • Charitable trusts
  • Charitable planning vehicles applicable to estate and gift planning

This course also covers IRC Section 170, which allows for a deduction from income for any qualified charitable contribution made within the taxable year. This section of the IRC, as well as its enforcement, has become the genesis for an entire industry.
