Medicaid Gifting Eligibility
Oftentimes, clients come to our office when planning for medicaid and have questions about medicaid gifting eligibility. Watch this educational video by experienced Buffalo medicaid attorney Robert Friedman to learn more.
Clients often confuse the federal gift tax exemption of $14,000 with Medicaid eligibility. The $14,000 that you are permitted to give away per year per person only refers to the US state and gift tax laws. It has nothing to do with Medicaid. If you are making these gifts, they may disqualify you from receiving Medicaid. You may be penalized regardless of what the federal US income and gift tax rules are.
