Gift Tax

One of the taxes that we went over in class was
gift taxes. This is a tax that is implied when
property, personal items, or money with a value of over
10,000 dollars is given from one person to another.
There are a few exceptions to this law such as giving to
non-prophit organizations or the donation is going
towards an education or tuition. I feel that this is a
good tax to have because it will keep greedy people from
transferring their money around to evade paying taxes on
it.

Gift tax is will make sure that all citizens pay
their fair amount of taxes which is decided by their
income. This tax is collected and responsible to the
donor. This person must file a gift - tax return with
the Internal Revenue Service. There are little ways to
extend the amount of a gift given but there is no way
around the tax that there is to be paid. One of the
tricks is to have a man and his wife donate because any

gift coming from a marriage can equal 20,000 dollars,
10,000 from the husband and 10,000 from the wife.
Medical, educational, non - prophit organization
donations, gifts to charities, and gifts to a spouse are
tax exempt.

Some examples of gifts that are not taxable are
giving your nephew 9,000 dollars for a present because
it is not over 10,000 dollars. Also paying 15,000
dollars for your friend to go to college is not taxable
because it is for a tuition. Now if you gave your son
25,000 dollars the first 10,000 dollars are tax exempt
but you have to pay tax on the other 15,000 dollars.

I think that this is a good tax because it keeps
people from using other people to hold their money so
they do not have to pay taxes on it. It will also make
more wealthy people want to give to charity or help out

  • Great Depression1
    Great Depression1 The Great Depression was the worst economic decline ever in U.S. history. It began in late 1929 and lasted about a decade. Throughout the 1920’s, many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; the main causes were the unequal distribution of wealth and extensive stock market speculation. Money was distributed unequally between the rich and the middle-class, between industry and agriculture within the United States, and between the U.S. and Europe. This disproporti

    Payment Methods for an International Transaction One of the subjects of international business that I have a particular interest in concerns the different payment tools that importers and exporters use when selling goods. There is an added level of risk present when conducting transactions internationally. This risk is in the form of theft, fraud, non-payment, complications of multiple governing agencies, and the inability to meet time deadlines. There are many financial payment tools that are c

    African Americans versus The Social Sciences American segregation was a bitter part of American history. Even worse, though, are the securing reasons for the need of segregation and the defense of the institution. I will be discussing the method in which segregation came into existence in America and how the populace advocated such a policy. The issue of segregation in America deals mostly with the idea of superiority and inferiority between the black, or African, and white, or Caucasian, races.

Our nation is over four trillion dollars in debt. It is time to act instead of letting lawyers and politicians play with our money. A flat tax plan is a simple solution to remedy the stagnant apathy our nation has been so accustomed to for the last seventy years. A flat tax would make calculating and collecting tax simple.

Marx contrasted it to capitalism in the widest sense of that word so he inflated the term to mean the political, social, economic, and cultural system of Medieval Europe. A economic
