gift in contemplation of death Search for pronunciation examples


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 like cats, indie rock music, chocolate, reading, drawing, watching movies and eating pizza. ( I know... I swear I&# 39; m not five years old.) I&# 39; d basically like to find someone to practice my English with or who would like to practice Spanish. :) I also like Russian and French, which are languages I don&# 39; t fully understand but would like to learn.

    « Algo de mi» Si... sincero, simpático y sociable cuando hay que hacerlo... Tolerante hasta no mas poder. Me gusta leer mucho y escribir unos cuantos garabatos... Pero algo escribo. Soy amigo para el quiere un amigo!! No veo actualmente y ni veré en el futuro inédito ser mejor que nadie, me basta con ser único en la autenticidad personal. (...) (:
