Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you with your tax question today.
There is no limit to the amount that she can gift to her daughter and granddaughter. However, if any gift is more than the annual limit of $14,000, there is a REPORTING requirement. The gifts would be reported on Form 709.
http://www.irs.gov/uac/Form-709,-United-States-Gift-(and-Generation-Skipping-Transfer)-Tax-Return
No tax would be due unless the mother has used her lifetime cap of $5.43 million.
Of course, there is no tax liability for the daughter and granddaughter because gifts are not taxable income in the U.S.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank you and best regards,
Barb
