Every dollar given to FPRAZ through a bequest or other the testamentary gift is fully deductible for federal estate tax purposes when certain legal requirements are met. An estate tax deduction is allowed for a deferred bequest to FPRAZ even though the bequest provides income benefits to individual beneficiaries.

Due to the fluid nature of the estate tax law, it is difficult to make definitive statements about the estate tax deduction available for charitable gifts made by a will. Please check with your advisor to see how the current law affects your estate plan.
