More on gifts of cash
Did you know that you can mail a check on December 31st and, even if the check is not received and cashed by UC Merced until after the new year, the IRS will allow you to take a deduction in the year the check was mailed, as long as the envelope shows a date of December 31st or earlier? Keep this in mind for year-end tax planning!
