I wonder how much stock that is, exactly. Seems to me odd that the document makes no mention of that, but what do I know?

Don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question.

So, basically, give it away, before it is taken away. Got it.

Default Re: I donated my Porch.com stock to MICB.

Wouldn't the reason be that one could not deduct a donation is they have no actual cash basis in something they are donating? If Jeffrey Jonas gave me 25% of the shares of his company because he thought I had a lot to offer (let's stay focused here lol) but then I gave those shares to the MICB I would not be able to claim that either.....( this was very simplified)

Nope. Donations are only deductible if they are made to charities (501(c)3s). You can't deduct a donation to a 501(c)6. Non one can, regardless of the value.

Seems to be another One of your "strategic partnerships" another one that is potentially damaging to all cmi (and maybe even all nachi) inspectors.
