gift in contemplation of death


n. (called a gift causa mortis by lawyers showing off their Latin), a gift of personal property (not real estate) by a person expecting to die soon due to ill health or age. Federal tax law will recognize this reason for a gift if the giver dies within three years of the gift. Treating the gift as made in contemplation of death has the benefit of including the gift in the value of the estate, rather than making the gift subject to a separate federal gift tax charged the giver. If the giver gets over an apparently mortal illness, the gift is treated like any other gift for tax purposes. See also: gift tax unified estate and gift tax

    I am widowed and retired from full time employment but like to keep working. This year I will be testing for national certification as a Medical Interpreter Spanish- English. I am studying to learn the Russian language and in a year or so plan to spend some time in Russia to complete the study and gain proficiency. I am a volunteer Interpreter with a free clinic and do a few other things that keep me busy.
