Questions? Dayes Law Firm Has The Answers

The gift tax is a federal tax on the transfer of money or property to another person while receiving nothing (or less than full value) in return. It applies when the value of the gift exceeds the annual exclusion amount set by the IRS. For 2023, the annual exclusion is $17,000 per recipient.

The annual gift tax exclusion is the amount you can give to any number of individuals each year without incurring gift tax. For 2023, this amount is $17,000 per recipient. Gifts under this amount do not need to be reported to the IRS.

In addition to the annual exclusion, there is a lifetime gift tax exemption, which is the total amount you can give away over your lifetime without incurring gift tax. For 2023, the lifetime exemption is $12.92 million. Gifts exceeding the annual exclusion count against this lifetime exemption.

You need to file a gift tax return (Form 709) if you give any gifts that exceed the annual exclusion amount. However, you generally won’t owe any gift tax unless your total lifetime gifts exceed the lifetime exemption. The return is due by April 15 of the year following the gift.

Yes, there are several exceptions to the gift tax:

  • Gifts to your spouse are generally not subject to gift tax.
  • Payments made directly to educational or medical institutions for someone’s tuition or medical expenses are exempt.
  • Gifts to qualified charitable organizations are also exempt from gift tax.

These exceptions allow you to transfer significant amounts without triggering the gift tax.
