IRS Form 709: The Federal Gift Tax Return
Oft ignored by the unwitting taxpayer and overlooked by the practitioner, gift tax returns are left unfiled. Find out when these returns are due and how to prepare them. This course will take an in-depth look at a hypothetical client who has made multiple gifts over a period of years, and now seeks your help to comply with all tax reporting requirements.
Many taxpayers made gifts in the last year to transfer substantial assets at little to no Federal gift tax cost to take advantage of the significant federal gift tax exclusion. Proper compliance with the complex gift tax rules remains necessary to protect and preserve the advantage of the current exclusion levels. There is also the threat of coming law changes to reduce the available exclusions.
