So, my question is, does it matter if mom writes me a check or I write myself one from this account in order to move some of the funds into one I solely control? Does the "custodian" designation restrict me from doing this myself, even though I've been of legal drinking age for some time? Are there any gift tax implications to transferring this money, even though it's been in an account with my name on it, and I've been paying the taxes on it's source and interest?Hi, BrettKing, Since the account you have is a Custodial account, and you're listed as the 'minor' (even though you're not a minor anymore), it's my understanding that one of the custodians would have to issue a check from the account. However, even being a 'minor' on the account, the money has always belonged to you, so there would be no gift tax implications.Stacy
