The Gift Tax And You

The annual exclusion for gifting to an individual is $13,000. For every dollar you go over this limit, you will reduce your lifetime exclusion of 1 million dollars. So lets say you decide to give your daughter a gift of $100,000 this year because she needs the money to pay off creditors, you will need to file a gift tax return come next April. There will be no gift tax due at that time, however the IRS will now know that your lifetime exemption is $913,000. (1 million less $87,000 since $13,000 of the $100,000 is entitled to the annual exemption).

Another option to consider is to lend the $100,000 to your daughter. By doing this and charging the applicable federal rate, the amount will not be deducted from your lifetime exclusion.

  • "My name is Emilio. When I was buying my property, I hired Mr William J Reinhardt Jr as my Real Estate Attorney, it was one of the best decision I ever made because he did everything in his power to make sure my purchase was successful. For example, The utilities bills left over by the person who owned the property before me. I said thank you to Bill for not allow me to pay these costly bills." - 5.0 stars | Posted by Emilio Bien Aime | October 1, 2019
