I'm considering setting up a Sec. 529 plan (College Savings Plan) and according to the Plan documents I can give up to $50,000 in a single year and "average out over five years for purposes of the gift tax exclusion." If I were to do this what form(s) do I need to complete so the IRS knows that I'm using this "averaging"? Is there a publication on this?Hopefully one of the CPAs or tax attorneys will follow this response with a more complete answer. I'm a little confused why a 529 Plan falls under Gift Tax rules. However, this TMF article ought to get you started:http://www.fool.com/school/taxes/1998/taxes980521.htmYou should also refer to IRS Pub 950, Introduction to Estate and Gift Tax. You can download a copy from this web site:http://www.irs.gov/forms_pubs/pubs.htmlDavid Jacobs
