Is there a way for a mother to give one of her sons $30K in one year without paying gift tax?

Above $14,000 from one person to one person a gift tax return would be required, but that doesn't necessarily mean that gift tax would be due. See the explanation of the unified credit in the 709 instructions.

I really recommend hiring advice when one gets into estate/gift tax territory.
