Proper gift tax reporting is essential to start the statute of limitations, allocate GST exemption, and utilize annual exclusions on reported gifts. Although Form 709 is relatively short, it has many nuances related to skip and non-skip persons, present and future interests, and trusts as recipients to name a few.

Many clients have made gifts in the uncertainty of the estate tax environment in 2021. This is a great time to review the details of proper reporting. Come with your questions and experiences so we can all learn more together.
