Art, Wine, and Collectible Assets – Tax

Art, Wine, and Collectible Assets


Artwork, wine, antiques, stamps, gems, and coins have traditionally been part of valuable portfolios, accompanied by other high-value collectibles such as classic cars and jewelry.  This asset calls includes anything rare and of collectible value.  Sports and historic memorabilia, antiques, rare manuscripts, celebrity autographs, rugs, and other tangible personal property are designated by the U.S. Department of Treasury as collectibles.  Owners, investors, and organizations with portfolios containing these high-value collectible assets engage in a variety of transactions that require careful planning and execution – purchasing, selling, borrowing against the collateral value, donating to charities, and passing on to their heirs.
