Gifts are not taxable income, so there would be no tax liability involved. However, if the gift was not cash and the children sold the property received, they would owe income tax on the excess of the proceeds of the sale over your cost basis in the property. Also, if the gift was $100,000 or more a Form 3520 must be filed with the IRS. This is an information return only, there is no tax involved.
