The general rule is that any gift is a taxable gift, however, there are many exceptions to this rule.
Generally, the following gifts are not taxable gifts:
The gift exclusion for 2006 through 2008 was $12,000 for each individual you chose to give a gift. The exclusion was $13,000 for 2009 through 2012. For 2013, the exclusion has increased to $14,000.
Please see IRS Publication 559 Introduction to Estate and Gift Taxes for more information regarding the Gift Tax.
TaxACT supports the individual tax return, but does not support the gift tax return on Form 709. This is a separate return from the individual tax return (Form 1040).
