My elderly parents have deeded a condo to me that I have been renting from them for the past 10 years. Will I pay taxes other than regular property taxes on this?

Assuming youíre a U.S. person, the receipt of gifts is not subject to income tax. Your parents should file gift tax returns for the transfer.
(Generally I donít favor gifts of appreciated real estate by elderly parents to their children. If a reader is considering making such a gift, be sure to get tax and legal counsel before going ahead.)
