IRS Field Service Advice (FSA) 20172801F provides a reminder that gift tax returns must be filed by taxpayers in order to start the statute of limitations. Generally, a gift that is adequately disclosed on a gift tax return or a schedule thereto will start a 3 year statute of limitations which the IRS has to contest the value of the gift. If the gift is not adequately disclosed, or if no gift tax return is filed, there is no statute of limitations and the gift may be subject to IRS audit indefinitely. If you have questions or need help in the preparation of a gift tax return, we can help. Contact us at 404-255-7400 or info@hoffmanestatelaw.com.
