How do I avoid gift tax?

There are a few ways to avoid gift tax. The first is to simply stay below the annual gift tax exclusion amount, which is currently $15,000 per person. This means that you can give up to $15,000 to any number of people in a year without having to pay any gift tax.

Another way to avoid gift tax is to use what's known as the "unified credit." This allows you to exempt the first $11.2 million of your total gifts from gift tax. So, if you give more than $15,000 to someone in a year, you can still avoid paying gift tax by using the unified credit.

Finally, you can also avoid gift tax by making gifts that are considered "qualified transfers." These include gifts to your spouse, gifts to a political organization, and gifts to certain charities. As long as you make sure that your gifts fall into one of these categories, you won't have to worry about paying gift tax.
