Instructions and Help about What Form 944 Pr Publication

Hi, I'm Maria and I work for the IRS. If you gave money or property to someone as a gift, you, as the giver, may need to file a federal gift tax return. However, this requirement applies only if your gift exceeded a certain dollar limit known as the annual exclusion amount. The IRS Form 709 instructions provide the annual exclusion amount for each tax year. If your gift surpassed the annual exclusion amount, it is likely that you will need to file a gift tax return. Nonetheless, it is possible that you may not owe any gift tax. Moreover, there are certain gifts that you don't need to report at all. For instance, you may not have to file a gift tax return if the gift was given to your spouse or a charity. Similarly, if you directly paid someone's medical expenses or tuition to the facility or school, you may also be exempt from filing a gift tax return. For more information and additional details, you can refer to Publication 559, specifically the section on gift taxes. You can find this publication on the IRS website at irs.gov by searching for "Publication 559.
