Benefits from donating a house to Habitat

In addition to freeing you from the costs and responsibilities of ownership, making an outright gift of property that you've owned for more than a year offers these benefits:

  • You obtain a one-time tax credit on their Illinois state income tax equal to 50 percent of the value of the donation as part of the IL Affordable Housing Tax Credit
  • You obtain an income tax charitable deduction equal to the property's full fair market value. This deduction reduces the cost of making your gift and frees cash that otherwise would have been used to pay taxes.
  • You eliminate capital gains tax on the property's appreciation.
  • The transfer isn't subject to the gift tax, and the gift reduces your future taxable estate
