A few years ago my in-laws gave my husband and I a "gift" of $1000. They gave the same amount to their other two children. I was very grateful and appreciative even though we didn't ask for it. The kicker was, at tax time they gave us a flippin' 1099.
I didn't say anything and we paid the taxes on this, but I couldn't believe they did that. Maybe because my parents wouldn't do that in a million years! My husband was kinda shocked, too! Was I wrong to be a little miffed?

No, I would be very miffed too. I am appalled and it didn't even happen to me. I have had to borrow money before and was told don't worry about it and to this day have to hear about how we spend our money even after we gave it back. I would have somehow given the money back. It obviously wasn't a gift. I would never ever accept money again after something like that. I would kindly decline the so called gift and say I can't afford to be 1099'd again....
