Thane Stenner discusses with Wealth Professional Canada the charitable donation outlook in light of the AMT hike.
Senior Portfolio Manager & Senior Wealth Advisor Thane Stenner of Stenner Wealth Partners+ at CG Wealth Management Canada spoke with Wealth Professional Canada about the AMT hike and how it may affect the amount high-net-worth individuals give to charity.
Sitting down with journalist and wealth editor, Noelle Boughton, Mr. Stenner discussed the late-March decision by the federal government to raise the alternative minimum tax rate in 2024 and how these changes will affect the size of future donations.
“While the uber-wealthy typically maintain an extremely charitable profile, they will account for the tax effects of these larger donations now,” said Mr. Stenner, rehashing his conversation with Wealth Professional Canada. “We must look at this realistically. I do think the news will most likely impact that ultimate size of donations.”
Mr. Stenner continued, elaborating on the possible positives to this decision such as smoother, more consistent donations in regular intervals instead of large amounts interspersed over a vast amount of time. Mr. Stenner’s experience serving on non-profit advisory boards and committees gives him keen insight into how these changes will ultimately affect the non-profit sector. He concluded his remarks with hope that the ultra-high-net-worth would continue to step up and give as they have over the pandemic, citing their faith, families, and compulsion to positively impact others by giving to charitable causes.
