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.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

If your son makes a gift of the property to you then you are not taxed on the gift.

Your son may have to report the gift on form 709 if it is valued at more than $15000. That is the amount for 2018 that a person can give to another and not have to report the gift.

Your son will still not owe any actual tax as long as he has not used up his lifetime allowance. That is $10mil for now.

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.

neither of us will owe tax

You for sure would not and he would most likely not based on his $10mil lifetime allowance BUT he still has to file form 709 to show that.
