Monetary gifts to any one individual that exceed the annual limit of $17,000 will be subjected to the gift
tax. This tax is typically paid by the giver, as opposed to the recipient. This $17,000 amount was set for
2023 but can vary from tax year to tax year. There is also a lifetime exclusion which is set at $12.92
million. Amounts gifted that exceed this amount given to the same person will likely be taxed. The gift
tax is only applicable on monies or assets that exceed the annual exclusion or lifetime exclusion. The tax
rate varies from individual to individual but can be anywhere from 18% to 40%.
