    Tis the Season of Giving - A Few Tax Points to Keep In Mind

    Tis the Season of Giving - A Few Tax Points to Keep In Mind

    Anna Kaiser - Tuesday, August 30, 2016
    It should not surprise you that the IRS has rules on gifting that you should keep in mind this holiday season.

    For your business:

    • •  Any cash gift given to your employees is to be included in their taxable wages.
    • •  If you give business gifts to clients or associates you may only deduct up to $25 of a gift given to each person
    Personal gifts over $14,000 in cash or property require a Gift Tax return to be filed and are taxable to the donor.

    Charitable contributions of cash need to be documented no matter the amount, but specifically amounts over $250 need to be documented by the qualified organization.

    These are just a few of the general rules the IRS has.   There are other rules and exemptions so if you have further questions feel free to contact me.
