Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer I'll assist.
There should be no tax to pay by your daughter. Treat the car check as a gift, and she should be fine.
The dealership has to report cash transactions of $10,000 or more to IRS, but that won't mean she has to pay tax. Gifts are tax free unless you have many millions of dollars she might inherit.
You could do nothing, and be fine, but the best thing to do is file a gift tax return, form 709. It just tells IRS that you choose not to pay tax on the gift. Whoever prepared your tax return, or hers, can complete the form for you. It's easy.
