I have read on numerous sites that you can have a family member OR your employer gift you money for closing costs. (http://www.phfa.org/programs/hafer/index.htm is one of them)Does anyone know the rules for having your employer do such a thing? For example, I have been told by the places that I have been applying for mortgages that they will require a gift letter specifying that the gift from the employer is "no strings attached" and that I do not have to pay it back. Essentially, it works like a bonus.So with either the case of a family member or an employer, will I or they have to include that amount in federal, state, local taxes? If the employer gift does not show up on a W2 or some other form at the end of the year, wouldn't that be the way to go? (provider you have an employer willing to help you out like this)-Brandon
