Quit Claim when transferring property


#1

If a QuitClaim is used when transferring a house into your spouses name who is responsible for the Gift Tax if one is imposed? It’s above the $13k limit but not above the $1,000,000 lifetime limit. Who is responsible for the Gift Tax if there is any tax at all?

Property settlements subsequent to separation shouldn’t be taxable, but I am not a tax advisor, and you should consult with one.
