Today TaxMama® hears from RJ in the TaxQuips Forum, with this question. “I just came across TaxMama’s 2012-09-04 TaxQuip to “Ivan” entitled “Late Gift Tax Return”
(at TaxMamas TaxQuips : TaxMama’s Free Daily Tax Podcasts or Late Gift Tax Return | taxmama | taxquips), which says (in part):
2) Did you know that if a gift tax should have been filed and wasn’t, the donee (the recipient) may be liable for the gift tax?
That’s something I wasn’t aware of. Could you please give some more information on this?”
Unless you have a specific question relating to you or a client, I shan’t be looking for general information.
However, you are certainly welcome to do the same search I would.
Google the following and read the resulting links: “irs.gov recipient liable for gift tax”
Or search the Tax Court Opinions for “recipient”, “gift tax”
You might have fun doing this.
