Does the IRS really allow you to give 60 thousand dollar tax-free gift to your wife?
In the Shawshank Redemption, Andy tells the head guard that he can keep his inheritance if he gives it to his wife. He says the government allows a one time gift to your spouse without paying taxes on it.
Was this ever a real life thing like this? Does it still exist?
