Some commercial annuities make payments for a person's lifetime and also provide survivorship benefits or partial refunds upon death. Designating KQED to receive such benefits can avoid both income taxes and estate taxes.
How: Check with the issuer of your annuity. Use KQED's legal name "KQED Inc.," and Taxpayer ID No., 94-1241309, if needed.
Please let us know your plans
By informing KQED of your Legacy Gift, you help us ensure that your intentions are fulfilled and give us the chance to thank you for your generosity. To notify us of your plans, please complete our request for information form or contact us.
