Did You Know?

September 28th, 2017 Posted in Did You Know?
The Current IRS Discount Rate is 2.2%

Also known as the AFR or Applicable Federal Rate, the IRS Discount Rate is part of the calculation used to determine the charitable deduction for many types of planned gifts, such as charitable remainder trusts and gift annuities. The rate is the annual rate of return that the IRS assumes the gift assets will earn during the gift term.

If you are considering a planned gift to the University of North Texas, you may use the discount rate for the month in which the gift is made or for either of the prior two months to calculate the planned gift deduction.

If you have questions on how to utilize the current IRS discount rate for planned giving or major gifts, please give the Office of Planned Giving a call at 940-565-3683 or email Roy Grisham at
