Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
A gift is not taxed to the recipient. A gift can be taxed to the person giving the gift. For each person you receive an annual exclusion of $14,000 in 2015 and over that amount you receive a lifetime exclusion of $5.43 million. So if you are concerned about your father having to pay anything from this gift then you should not be. Simply give the gift and if it is over $14,000 then you as the gift giver will deal with it.
