Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
The form 709 is used to report gifts made in a year that are over the annual allowed amount ($14000).
You can split the gift and each report half (you each also have the annual allowed amount) and then if the property was valued at more then $28000, you are required to file form 709 to report.
The amount that is over the annual will reduce your estate allowance ($5.49 mil).
Please rate in a positive way (look for the STARS ) so I am credited with responding.
