Abdo Insights

A behind-the-numbers view of best practices and holistic thinking.

To file or not to file a gift tax return, that is the question

If you’re giving gifts this year you may be wondering if you need to file a gift tax return. In fact, there are situations when it’s necessary (or desirable) to file even if you’re not liable for any gift tax.

Plan carefully to avoid GST tax surprises

Designed to ensure that wealth is taxed at each generational level, the GST tax is among the harshest and most complex in the tax code. If you want to share some of your wealth with your grandchildren, it’s critical to plan ahead.
