If I give a gift of $13,000 do I have any tax responsibilities on that money.

Thank you

Answer

The receiver does not have responsibilities. As a giver, you DO need to report the gift to the IRS by filing form 709, United States Gift (and Generation-Skipping Transfer) Tax Return.  Hope this helps!
