Take full advantage of your annual gift tax exclusion
Abstract: One of the most effective estate-tax-saving techniques is also one of the simplest and most convenient: making maximum use of the annual gift tax exclusion. Individuals can annually make up to $15,000 in gifts per person gift tax free ($16,000 in 2022). This article explains how an individual can maximize the amount of assets he or she can annually pass to loved ones using the annual gift tax exclusion. A sidebar details when a gift tax return must be filed.
