Can he gift to many other(trusted)relatives with the agreement that they have to give it back to his 3 children? He would write them a check and they would deposit it in the bank and write another check back to his 3 children for the $10,000.00 that was gifted to them. No. This is an obvious sham transaction and the IRS would recharacterize it as gifts to the 3 kids. There are ways to leverage the $10,000 annual exclusion and other efficient ways to make gifts. Your father needs to see an estate planning attorney (and one who is an elder law specialist as well, if Medicaid/long term care is an issue). This is not the kind of planning that is do-it-yourself stuff.Chris Risercrisercriser@mayer-risercom
