- gift tax
Federal taxes assessed on any gift, or combination of gifts, from one person to another that exceeds $13,000 in one year. Several kinds of gifts are exempt from this tax: gifts to tax-exempt charities, gifts to your spouse (limited to $133,000 annually if the recipient isn't a U.S. citizen), and gifts made for tuition or medical bills. In addition to the annual gift tax exclusion, there is a $1 million cumulative tax exemption for gifts. In other words, you can give away a total of $1 million during your lifetime — over and above the gifts you give using the annual exclusion — without paying gift taxes.Category: Wills, Trusts & Estates → Estates, Executors & Probate CourtCategory: Wills, Trusts & Estates → Living Trusts & Avoiding ProbateCategory: Wills, Trusts & Estates → Wills
