Charitable Bargain Sale: FAQs

What if the property has a mortgage or other lien on it?

The mortgage or lien can and should be paid off prior to the bargain sale or with the sale proceeds received by the previous owner. This produces the best tax benefit to the donor/seller. If the charity assumes the lien or mortgage then this is considered taxable income to the donor/seller.
