A Gift Tax return for gift transfers made prior to July 1, 2008, is required. WHO MUST FILE A RETURN – Every individual, association, partnership, or corporation making a gift to a single donee must file a Gift Tax Return of Donor. A separate return is required for each calendar year in which property is transferred by gift. EXCLUSIONS AND EXEMPTIONS Effective for Years Gift Tax Annual Exclusion 1998 - 2001 $10,000 2002 - 2005 $11,000 2006 - 2008 $12,000 SPECIFIC EXEMPTION – A taxpayer may receive a specific lifetime exemption, not to exceed $30,000. The exemption can be used to reduce the amount of any gifts made by a donor. A donor may attribute the entire amount or any portion of the exemption, in any one calendar year or spread it over many calendar years to reduce a gift. If the gift exceeds the annual exclusion or the gift is specifically exempt, a return must be filed even though no tax is due. WHEN TO FILE – A calendar year return is due on or before the 15th day of April following the calendar year in which the gift was made. WHERE TO FILE AND PAY TAX – The return must be filed with the Louisiana Department of Revenue (LDR), P.O. Box 201, Baton Rouge, LA 70821-0201. Payment of the tax due must accompany the return. DO NOT SEND CASH. BASIS OF THE TAX – The true and full value of the property at the date of transfer shall be the value of the gift for the purpose of computing the tax due. Taxable year – The current taxable year is the calendar year for which the return is being filed. PRIOR YEAR TAXABLE GIFTS – Refers to taxable gifts made in calendar years prior to the current taxable year. The gifts must have been previously reported on R-3302, and tax must have been paid. Transfers by residents – The tax is imposed upon the transfer of all property located in Louisiana. For this purpose, intangible property owned by a Louisiana resident is deemed to be located in Louisiana. Transfers by nonresidents – The tax is imposed upon all tangible movable and immovable property located in Louisiana. Exempt transfers – R.S. 47:1204 provided that the following transfers shall be exempt from tax: (1) Gifts to charitable, religious, or educational institutions located within the State of Louisiana, provided the net earnings of the organization benefit no private shareholder or individual. (2) Gifts made to the United States, the State of Louisiana, or any political subdivision of Louisiana (parish, municipality, or town), or civic organizations, provided the donor receives no direct or indirect benefit as a result of such donations. (3) Gifts made by a person to his spouse beginning with calendar year 1992. GIFT SPLITTING OF SEPARATE PROPERTY GIVEN BY HUSBAND OR WIFE TO ANOTHER PARTY – R.S. 47:1205(C) considers gifts of separate property made by one spouse to another party, other than his or her spouse, as though one-half is made by each spouse, provided that: (1) each spouse is a resident of Louisiana at the time of the gift; and (2) both spouses signify on their Louisiana gift tax return their consent to split the gift. For purposes of the statute, an individual is considered as the spouse of another individual only if he is married to such individual at the time of the gift and does not remarry during the remainder of the calendar year. Consent to gift splitting must be signified under the section of the return titled “Declaration By Signature.” Rate of tax – The tax is calculated on the total of all taxable gifts made by a donor during his lifetime. A taxable gift is that amount by which the gift exceeds the applicable annual exclusions and any portion of the specific exemption claimed and allowed. The first $15,000 in taxable gifts is taxed at 2 percent, and all taxable gifts in excess of $15,000 are taxed at 3 percent. Interest – Refer to the Tax Interest Rate Schedule (R-1111) for monthly interest rates that apply. Form R-1111 is available on LDR’s website at www.revenue.louisiana.gov. Interest is calculated from the due date of the return until the tax is paid. Delinquent penalty and late payment penalty – R.S. 47:1602 imposes a delinquent penalty for the filing of a return after it becomes due. In addition, the statute imposes a late-payment penalty for the failure either to remit the total amount of tax shown due on a return that has been filed or to submit a written statement of estimated tax due with a request for an extension of time for filing a return. The penalty is 5 percent of the tax for each 30 days, or fraction thereof, that a return is delinquent or a remittance is late. The penalty cannot exceed 25 percent of the tax due. EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE FOR FILING A RETURN – The Secretary of Revenue may grant an extension of time for filing the return for a period not to exceed six months from the due date of the return. All requests for an extension must be in writing and must be received prior to the due date of the return. To avoid imposition of a late payment penalty, remittance of estimated tax due must also accompany the request. The Secretary may accept an extension of time to file a federal gift tax return for the same tax year as an extension to file R-3302.
