I am 88 years old. I had a stroke in December 2012. My total income for 2013 was $16,000 (Social Security $12,000 and Veterans Administration spousal Aid and Attendance $4,000). After a short hospital stay, coming back to live in my own home required a full time caregiver. My daughter quit her job to care for me. I gave her $22,000 in 2013 to supplement her lost income. Would it be correct that she report $13,000 as “gifted” money and $9,000 as “income” when filing her return? Also, do I need to file a tax return?
