Hello,I understand that I can give a gift of appreciated stockto someone with a lower tax rate and the gain on thestock will be taxed at the receiver's lower rate. Assumingthat this is correct, I have a couple of questions:- To get the long term capital gain, does the receiver have to hold the stock for 18 months even though I have already held it for more than 18 months?- If the person gives me any gifts during the year that I have given the stock, will that gift in any way jeapordize the tax advantage of the stock which I gave to begin with? (I asked a similar question before but this one puts the question in context -- specifically, I want to give stock to my mother who is in a much lower tax bracket. I am trying to ensure that any gifts she gives to me during the same year do not have tax ramifications.)Thank you,Craig
