Testing Financial Tolerance For Family Gifting

Once you understand that present gifting makes tax sense you must determine if gifting makes sense for you- long term!

You must determine the answer to this question? We must make sure that there's no way we can run out of money for ourselves. I don't ever want to ask for any of our gifts back-Can we afford to gift?

To determine your tolerances for gifting you must analyze your retirement cash flow needs (with inflation) combined with a study of your estate tax liabilities- including a review of the effects of present interest gifting vs. a no gifting analysis.

Only then can you have the comfort (tolerance) for gifting no matter how much tax sense it may make.

Why?

 
Estate and transfer taxes can be confiscatory- in some cases taking over 80 on the dollar for certain types of assets (37% - 85%).
A well designed gifting program can shift money from one "Family Pocketbook" to another family pocketbook, bypassing all transfer costs
Income taxes have already been paid on much of your asset base. Proper gifting can avoid "double taxation" on all cumulative gifts and the growth of them.
Modest gifts, properly funded over many years can create significant amounts in "Protected Family Assets"
