"The Bernard Kerik Legal Defense Trust has been established to allow Mr. Kerik’s friends and supporters to assist him in defending himself against possible charges that may be brought against him by the United States Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York."
"Having incurred legal fees in the course of the Bronx and federal investigation and paid a substantial financial penalty when he settled the Bronx case, and having had his business impacted by the intense publicity, he is not in a position to fund a proper defense to this federal case"
The trust may accept unlimited personal contributions.
2. How Will the Funds Be Used?
Any contribution you make to the Trust will be treated as a gift to Mr. Kerik to be used at his discretion. All funds collected will be deposited with the trustee of the Trust, and it is Mr. Kerik’s intention that any funds contributed to the Trust will be used to defray legal expenses incurred by him during any civil or criminal investigations or court proceedings to which he may be a witness, subject or party, to reimburse him for any income taxes he incurs as a result of contributions to the Trust and income derived there from, and to pay any costs incident to creating, managing, and encouraging contributions to the Trust. In the event of Mr. Kerik’s death prior to the conclusion of any such investigation or proceeding, it is his intention that the funds in the Trust be used to defray any legal expenses incurred by his family. If any funds are left in the Trust once Mr. Kerik’s legal expenses have been paid in full, it is Mr. Kerik’s intention to donate the remainder of the funds in the Trust to a charity or charities to be determined at his discretion.
3. Are There Any Potential Tax Implications?
Your contribution to the Trust is not tax-deductible, and you may incur federal gift tax liability. However, an individual donor can make an annual tax-free gift of up to $12,000, and a married couple can make an annual tax-free gift of up to $24,000. However, you should consult your own accountant or tax advisor regarding your personal financial situation and any potential tax liability before making a contribution to the Trust.
