what is the procedure for gifting money to family tax free

Resolved Question:

what is the procedure for gifting money to family tax free

Any person can give up to $13,000 per year to any other person, tax free and without reporting the gift to the IRS. For example, two parents with three children could give each child $13,000, per year, and since there are two parents, that would be $26,000 to each child, total.

For gifts in excess of $13,000 to any one person, the donor must report the gift to the IRS on Form 709. The maximum aggregate lifetime gift to all donees is $1,000,000.

Hope this helps.
