Is there a limit as to how much money you can gift someone?

  • Not a limit- but a tax if you gift 'too' much. Like SleepingBeautee said, if you gift more than $13,000 to any one person there are no taxes- anything more than that, and there are taxes.

    But as long as you don't mind paying the taxes, then no there is no limit.

  • Do you mean as far as taxes go? If so you can gift up to $13,000 a person, or $26,000 a couple. It is not taxable as long as it is less than that.

  • From a tax perspective, yes. The limit this year is $13,000 per individual to avoid any kind of tax consequence.

  • For me it depends on who the gift is for. My kids a 100.00. Of course their now adults and I know how expensive it is for them. Good friends 25.00-50.00, dependin on how good, lol

  • it depends on who you are giving a gift to, I bought my girlfriend a gift card from starbucks but only had ten dollars on it, she is however my best friend and i wasnt trying to make an impression or impress just a little gift for her for v-day, so it all depends on the occasion and who the person is i think

  • I wasn't referring to taxes, I was actually asking if there was a legal limit. I didn't think so. Thanks ladies.
