ERock Tax Tip – Gift Money to Family, Friends or Even a Stranger
If you have the good fortune to give large sums money to either family members, friends or even strangers, the IRS allows you to gift up to $13,000 per year tax free to an individual. While the giver has to file Form 709, United States Gift Tax Return, the recipient neither has to report it on their tax return nor pay tax on it. A very nice gift indeed!
