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.
If you receive $10,000 a year from your nephew, as a gift it is not reported by you in the US as income. It is not reported as a deductible gift by him either.
If this is not a gift and you have sold something to him then that may change the answer.
He does not get to deduct any gift to an individual. The gift has to be to a charitable organization recognized by either the US or Canada.
