Tax returns do not transfer property, so getting a copy of the return will not help you prove that you own an asset. Depending on what your talking about there may be something that evidences your interest, such as an LLC or partnership agreement, deed, or trust document. You should seek legal advice to help you straighten this out.
The above is not legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please seek local counsel.
You need to enter in some more facts and details in order to get an attorneys best advice and counsel. Once u do, resubmit your question please...
What type of asset is it that you were gifted? Was it a partnership interest or LLC interest? If so, you should have receive paperwork showing the gifting of such an interest? Was it a percent of real estate? If so, you can pull the vesting deed to the property to see the gift. The donor (i.e. the giver of the gift) has the tax burden of filing a gift tax return and paying taxes owed (if any) on any gift with a value of over $14,000 (per person). I recommend that you provide more information herein, or seek legal counsel. Good luck.
