Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

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 your mother is still alive she can file that now. You can still gift the house to someone though. You will need to file form 709 for this gift even if your mother had filed correctly in the past.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.

she can file the 709 after all this time? and if i gift it now then i will do a 709 at this time as well?

Yes. If the house is valued at more than $15000 (new amount for 2018) you must file the 709.
