Not always true. There are times when the recipient can be liable. Usually this is after a long period of time since the gift and the donor is broke.
Also, some donees can accept li...

Only if the Donor that left you the money had an estate in excess of $5,250,000 and that gift was after they had already used their unified credit and that donor failed to pay the gift tax. If all of these things are true, you may be secondarily liable for the gift tax. Also, you would only be liabl...

Talk to an accounting...estate tax accounting is more similar to trust accounting than individual accounting.
Did you receive a bequest or compensation? If it is a bequest you shouldn't have to report anything. If it is compensation you will likely have to report it in 2013 since you are a cash ...

[quote]I jumped the gun, Vitters campaign advisor is in Flemings camp. We technically don't know who Vitter is supporting but I tend to think its Cassidy. Also, Jindal is really going to hurt the GOP candidate IMO. Landrieu is going to use the Jindal agenda against the nominee.

I have a hunch Cassidy will announce a great campaign manager soon which will signify how serious his support is. I bet we will be surprised with who comes out to support him early on. LAGOP won't let there be a nasty primary. They'll tell Fleming to wait until Vitter runs for governor and then it w...

A revocable trust is useful to keep assets out of probate. This is not legal advice as you are not my client, but I really don't see the point in this context. It's not like the court will kick either one of you out during the probate process. ...
