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

    Escribo y me gusta escribir cuentos y relatos en español en mis tiempos libres. Por desgracia no me atrevo aún a escribir en francés; aunque en un futuro no muy lejano tal vez lo haga... Es con este fin que me inscribí en este portal. Sobre todo para enriquecer mi léxico, mi vocabulario, etc., auxiliándome, además, en la utilización de los diversos diccionarios y enciclopedias que se manejan en el sitio. Me interesa sobremanera el famoso y consabido Diccionario de María Moliner, que es el que más uso. Soy mexicano y vivo al sur de la Ciudad de México con una fuerte influencia y admiración hacia la cultura y civilización gala desde niño... ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que amen el español y el francés tal como yo! ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que gusten de las culturas y civilizaciones iberoamericanas y, sobre todo, que les plazca y que gusten mi hermoso y maravilloso país!
