Resolved Question:

I have $40,000 that i want to give to my oldest (of three) daughters to keep for me until I need it. What kind of tax complications will this cause? Gift tax or income tax or what?

If you are giving this money to her and will get it back in future than this is not considered a gift. Loan given to someone is not taxable.

Hence, if the intention is to give the money for safekeeping and to get the same back in future than there will be no tax - income or gift- applicable to this situation.

Let me know if you have any question.
