A gift deed, or deed of gift, is a legal document voluntarily transferring title to real property from one party (the grantor or donor) to another (the grantee or donee). A gift deed typically transfers real property between family or close friends. Gift deeds are also used to donate to a non-profit organization or charity. The deed serves as proof that the transfer is indeed a gift and without consideration (any conditions or form of compensation).

Valid deeds must meet the following requirements: The grantor must intend to make a present gift of the property, the grantor must deliver the property to the grantee, and the grantee must accept the gift. A gift deed must contain language that explicitly states no consideration is expected or required, because any ambiguity or reference to consideration can make the deed contestable in court. A promise to transfer ownership in the future is not a gift, and any deed that does not immediately transfer the interest in the property, or meet any of the aforementioned requirements, can be revoked [1].

A lawful gift deed includes the grantor's full name and marital status, as well as the grantee's full name, marital status, mailing address, and vesting. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. For Oklahoma residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless the conveyance specifically and expressly creates a joint tenancy or tenancy by entirety (60 O.S. 74).

As with any conveyance of real estate, a gift deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. In Oklahoma, the legal description must provide the information necessary for indexing as required by Section 287 and 291 of Title 19 O.S. (addition, block & lot, section, township & range, and metes & bounds if necessary for the location). Recite the source of title to establish a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. For any questions regarding a transfer of property affecting Indian Land, refer to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and contact a lawyer. Record the completed deed at the local County Clerk's office.

In Oklahoma, gift deeds between any persons related within the second degree of consanguinity , without actual consideration, are exempt from the Documentary Stamp tax and must include the following phrase below the title of the document: Exempt Documentary Stamp Tax O.S. Title 68, Article 32 Section 3202, Paragraph 4.

The IRS implements a Federal Gift Tax on any transfer of property from one individual to another with no consideration, or consideration that is less than the full market value. In accordance with federal law, individuals are permitted an annual exclusion of $15,000 on gifts. This means that gifts valued below $15,000 do not require a federal gift tax return (Form 709). Even so, donors should consider filing one for many gifts of real property [2].

In Oklahoma, there is no state gift tax. When a transfer is by gift, no tax withholding is required either [3]. For questions regarding state taxation laws, consult a tax specialist. Gifts of real property in Oklahoma are, however, subject to the federal gift tax. The grantor is responsible for paying the federal gift tax; however, if the grantor does not pay the gift tax, the grantee will be held liable [1].

With gifts of real property, the recipient of the gift (grantee) is not required to declare the amount of the gift as income, but if the property accrues income after the transaction, the recipient is responsible for paying the requisite state and federal income taxes [3].

It would be helpful if there were a specific example of putting a deed into a trust. Also, the limitation of characters on the description of the property was not enough.

My county accessors office recommended this site. My Uncle passed away and did not leave a will and I needed to have his deed transferred into my name. I was able to do it using the sample Deeds.com provided. I used it as a guide to fill out the paperwork that I printed off of the Deeds.com site. I had no problem when I went to the county and turned in the paperwork and the clerk said everything looked great.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience Lori. We are deeply sorry for your loss and understand how challenging managing affairs can be during such a difficult time. It's heartening to hear that our resources were helpful to you in transferring your uncle's deed into your name.

We strive to make complex processes more accessible and manageable, and your feedback affirms the value of our work. Knowing that the county assessor's office recommended us and that the clerk found everything in order with your paperwork is incredibly gratifying.

Easy, but it would be nice if there was an option for font size. It looks tiny, like 6 or 8.
