Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
I think it's great that you are helping your daughter with her down payment!
There are no additional requirements. The gift letter is not required for tax purposes, but would be for the lender who is closing on the loan.
There will be no gift tax return to file, as the amount is under the annual $14,000 per person limit. So, you and your wife could have given your daughter each $14,000 and not had to file a gift tax return.
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
If not, please take a moment to rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
