Under federal law, a gift is defined as any transfer wherein you receive nothing or less than the fair market value in exchange for the transferred asset. An estate, on the other hand, is similar to a gift, except that an estate is composed of the assets you leave after you pass away. As of 2017, every individual is allowed to give away or leave up to $5.49M without owing federal gift or estate tax. While the statute may seem straightforward, it can get complicated under certain circumstances such as high-net worth individuals, a non-U.S. citizen spouse, owning significant assets and properties offshore, and more. If any of these circumstances apply to you, it is important to have a skilled international estate planning attorney by your side to help protect your assets.
