MasterTech Financial Elucidates & Incorporates Charitable Remainder Trust Planning into Financial Programs to Help Provide Tax Relief


Rancho Santa Fe, California–(Newsfile Corp. – December 22, 2022) – MasterTech Financial, a leading provider of financial planning and wealth management services expanded its strategy for divorcing the IRS from taxable events. This innovative strategy allows individuals to sell highly appreciated assets without incurring taxes on the sale, through the use of a Tax-Exempt Trust recognized by the IRS as a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT).

Founder & President of MasterTech Financial, John A. House, ChFC, CEPA aims to help high-net-worth individuals and families take advantage of the tools buried in the tax code to help provide tax relief.

According to House, the IRS provides attorneys with trial documents to ensure proper drafting of a CRT. This trust allows individuals to sell highly appreciated assets, such as real estate, cattle, a business, or public security, without incurring taxes on the sale.

“By transferring the title of your property to a CRT before entering into a contractual agreement with a buyer, you can avoid federal taxes, depreciation recapture, and state income taxes,” said House. “The IRS actually rewards you with a tax deduction for the charitable gift that will be made to the charity of your choice upon the death of you and your spouse.”

In addition to the tax benefits, a CRT also allows for more lifetime income and establishes a family legacy for children to oversee charitable causes. “When you run the numbers, everyone usually smiles,” said House. “A 2 to 1-lifetime financial advantage will normally occur when comparing a CRT to a direct sale.”

MasterTech Financial is committed to providing its clients with the best financial strategies and advice. For more information on how to legally divorce the IRS and take advantage of a Charitable Remainder Trust.
