Taxact login 3. Taxact login   Gifts Table of Contents If you give gifts in the course of your trade or business, you can deduct all or part of the cost. Taxact login This chapter explains the limits and rules for deducting the costs of gifts. Taxact login $25 limit. Taxact login   You can deduct no more than $25 for business gifts you give directly or indirectly to each person during your tax year. Taxact login A gift to a company that is intended for the eventual personal use or benefit of a particular person or a limited class of people will be considered an indirect gift to that particular person or to the individuals within that class of people who receive the gift. Taxact login   If you give a gift to a member of a customer's family, the gift is generally considered to be an indirect gift to the customer. Taxact login This rule does not apply if you have a bona fide, independent business connection with that family member and the gift is not intended for the customer's eventual use. Taxact login   If you and your spouse both give gifts, both of you are treated as one taxpayer. Taxact login It does not matter whether you have separate businesses, are separately employed, or whether each of you has an independent connection with the recipient. Taxact login If a partnership gives gifts, the partnership and the partners are treated as one taxpayer. Taxact login Example. Taxact login Bob Jones sells products to Local Company. Taxact login He and his wife, Jan, gave Local Company three gourmet gift baskets to thank them for their business. Taxact login They paid $80 for each gift basket, or $240 total. Taxact login Three of Local Company's executives took the gift baskets home for their families' use. Taxact login Bob and Jan have no independent business relationship with any of the executives' other family members. Taxact login They can deduct a total of $75 ($25 limit × 3) for the gift baskets. Taxact login Incidental costs. Taxact login   Incidental costs, such as engraving on jewelry, or packaging, insuring, and mailing, are generally not included in determining the cost of a gift for purposes of the $25 limit. Taxact login   A cost is incidental only if it does not add substantial value to the gift. Taxact login For example, the cost of gift wrapping is an incidental cost. Taxact login However, the purchase of an ornamental basket for packaging fruit is not an incidental cost if the value of the basket is substantial compared to the value of the fruit. Taxact login Exceptions. Taxact login   The following items are not considered gifts for purposes of the $25 limit. Taxact login An item that costs $4 or less and: Has your name clearly and permanently imprinted on the gift, and Is one of a number of identical items you widely distribute. Taxact login Examples include pens, desk sets, and plastic bags and cases. Taxact login Signs, display racks, or other promotional material to be used on the business premises of the recipient.

Taxact login Figure B. Taxact login When Are Local Transportation Expenses Deductible?TAs for Figure B are: Reg 1. Taxact login 162-1(a); RR 55–109; RR 94–47 Gift or entertainment. Taxact login   Any item that might be considered either a gift or entertainment generally will be considered entertainment. Taxact login However, if you give a customer packaged food or beverages you intend the customer to use at a later date, treat it as a gift. Taxact login    If you give a customer tickets to a theater performance or sporting event and you do not go with the customer to the performance or event, you have a choice. Taxact login You can treat the cost of the tickets as either a gift expense or an entertainment expense, whichever is to your advantage. Taxact login   You can change your treatment of the tickets at a later date by filing an amended return. Taxact login Generally, an amended return must be filed within 3 years from the date the original return was filed or within 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later. Taxact login    If you go with the customer to the event, you must treat the cost of the tickets as an entertainment expense. Taxact login You cannot choose, in this case, to treat the cost of the tickets as a gift expense. Taxact login Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
