Good morning mr Phelps

Megan C :

Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to help you

Megan C :

Your requested professional is not online.

Megan C :

You can gift your son up to $14,000 each ($28,000 total) without having to file a gift tax return.

Megan C :

If you gift him over that, you would have to file a return, although no gift tax is due whatsoever unless you have given away more than $5.2 million during your lifetime.

Megan C :

If you wish to loan your son the money, then no disclosure is needed to th eIRS

Megan C :

You would simply create an agreement which states the loan amount, interest rate, and payment schedule.

Megan C :

But to reiterate, there is no tax if you gift your son money if you have not gifted over $5.2 million during your life.

Megan C :

If you want this to be a loan you would need a promissory note with the loan amount, interest rate, and repayment schedule.

Megan C :

If you gift $28,000 or less ($14,000 for each you and your wife) there is no need to do anything - not even file a gift tax return
