    Is person B listed as an heir?

    Person A slips XX,000 to Person B. Says by doing this, they have done Person B a favor.


    To me this seems kind of like money laundering or something. Or setting up Person B to make false claims on their tax return.

    What do you think.
    What is the bolded section?

    Is spouse person A?
    Person B is a sibling of person A?

    What false claims do you think they will be making?
    They could fill out a gift tax form, and a deduction for charity, as the law would allow.

    It would still be a tax deduction, and then they have to file gift tax on the "reimbursed".
