I read that I can gift up to $14,000 to anyone and neither

Customer Question

I read that I can gift up to $14,000 to anyone and neither me nor the gift recipient will face any tax consequences.
I assume this gift (up to $ 14,000) may be deducted from my income.
Am I correct?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. You can gift up to 14K annually without having to file a gift tax return or pay gift tax. You can also gift up to 5.43M during your lifetime without having to pay gift tax. You can gift more than 14K annually without tax consequences, but you will have to file form 709 - gift tax return. Gifts are never claimed as income by the receiver and never deducted as expense by the donor. No, you cannot deduct a gift.
