Gift

An asset of any kind that an individual transfers to another individual while neither receiving nor expecting anything in return. A gift one receives is taxable in the United States, but only if its value exceeds $13,000 (in 2009) and is not specifically excluded. For example, gifts between spouses are not taxable under any circumstances. See also: Estate, Gift Tax.
