Hello

You can give your daughter that amount and she would not have to report or pay any tax on the gift.

You would have to report a gift of that amount (it is over the annual amount $14,000) on form 709 BUT

tax would not apply as long as you have not used up your lifetime amount for gifts ($5.43 million).

You have to report it because the amount over $14000 reduces your ESTATE allowance. So when you pass your estate has less to claim for tax exclusion but you would not pay tax on the gift.

Please post below if you need clarification because Gift Tax reporting can be confusing.
