How much will the gift and inheritance tax exemption increase?

The United States Internal Revenue Service (also known as the Internal Revenue Service or IRS) gives citizens an important reason to start donating. It turns out that, to the delight of many, it increases the gift and inheritance tax exemption throughout 2024. Do you want to know more about it?

It is worth pointing out that, currently, many people consider donations as a strategy to reduce the amount of annual taxes to be paid. So, through 2023, Americans can donate up to $17,000 to any number of people—tax-free—in a year.

HOW MUCH IS THE ANNUAL EXCLUSION FOR DONATIONS AND INHERITANCE?

In 2024, the IRS increased the annual gift exclusion to $18,000. For married couples, this means they can donate up to $36,000 per recipient per year.

You should note that if a gift exceeds this annual limit, it will not automatically trigger a gift tax. You just need to declare the gift and deduct his lifetime exemption this year.

WHAT IS THE LIFETIME EXEMPTION?

The lifetime tax exemption is the amount the IRS allows a person to give away money or property during their lifetime.

In that regard, it was announced that the lifetime gift and estate tax exemption is set at $13.61 million in 2024, which allows Americans to transfer more assets without gift taxes.

HOW MUCH IS THE STUDENT’S EXCLUSION FROM DONATIONS TO ANOTHER SPOUSE?

While donations between two American spouses are virtually unlimited, this is not the case if one of them is a foreigner.

In 2024, the amount that a non-US citizen spouse can donate is set at $175,000 per year, tax-free.

OTHER IRS MEASURES FOR 2024

  • For fiscal year 2024, for participants with exclusive coverage in a medical savings account, the plan must have an annual deductible of no less than $2,800.
  • Excluding foreign earned income is $126,500.
  • The maximum credit allowed for adoption for tax year 2024 is the amount of qualified adoption expenses up to $16,810.
