is it legal to accept money as a gift through paypal
Lawyer: Dave Kennett, Lawyer (JD) replied 8 years ago

I know of no law that prevents it. I send money to my son for my grandkids all the time for gifts through Paypal. If I'm not mistaken there's even a box to check for gifts.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
