You are asking the wrong people then. I personally know two LDS members that paid their tithing just last year (2015) using stock... one of them it was hundreds of thousands of dollars worth.

I can get you the contact info if you are seriously interested.

When asked the answer comes back as NO. They say sell, convert to dollars and give them the dollars.

That's not correct Chuck... I know many wealthy LDS people that donate stock for tithing. They will only accept the "larger" stocks, such as Apple, Google, Amazon, GM, Ford, etc... but they do take it, and lots of people use that option.

I use this tax strategy years ago and it enabled me to donate more money and pay less tax.

    the banks, which helps on personal financial statements.

    come up with... LOL
