“Not too long ago, the U.S. Tax Court concluded that a daughter could deduct medical expenses and real estate taxes on her Form 1040 even though they were covered by gifts from her mother (Judith Lang, TC Memo 2010-286). The gifts were in the form of direct payments by the mother to the medical service providers and local government entities.”
