What is the Wisconsin Gift Deed?

Gifts of Real Estate in Wisconsin

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).

In order for a gift deed to be valid they 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 Wisconsin residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are joint tenancy, tenancy in common, and community property. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more unmarried persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy with the right of survivorship is specifically created in the conveyance. Real estate conveyed to spouses vests as community property (Wis. Stat. 700.02 onward; 766.605).

As with any conveyance of real estate, a gift deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. In Wisconsin, if the legal description references a plat, the plat should be attached to the deed (Wis. Stat. 236.25). Recite the source of title to establish a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. Record the completed deed, along with a Wisconsin Real Estate Transfer form. If the transfer form has not been completed, an exemption number must be present on the document.
The fee for recording a real estate document in Wisconsin is $30, regardless of the number of pages. The fee for a plat is $50. The current transfer fee rate is $3 per $1000 of value (Wis. Stat 59.43).

The grantor is responsible for paying the Federal Gift Tax. 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 if a gift is valued below $15,000, a federal gift tax return (Form 709) does not need to be filed. However, if the gift is something that could possibly be disputed by the IRS -- such as real property -- a grantor may benefit from filing a Form 709 [2].

In Wisconsin, there is no state gift tax. For questions regarding state taxation laws, consult a tax specialist. Gifts of real property in Wisconsin 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].

Name: Sharon G.

Review: I could not be happier with the service afforded by Deeds.com. After having been directed to two other organizations who purportedly performed this service and being told they could not accommodate me, I found Deeds.com. The website is extremely easy to use, the directions are clear and concise. The site updated me regularly as the documents were progressing through the process, and the detailing of costs was great. The turn-around -- which isn't completely in the hands of the site -- was incredibly quick. I'd use this group again without reservation. As a person who'd have to otherwise travel almost five hours to record, this has been heaven-sent!

Name: Richard W.

Review: My experience so far is quite good. Useful documents. It would be very helpful if the labels on the files downloaded were in text format, like "Jurat" rather than "1429107022SF21141." It would save me the extra step of providing proper file names.

Review: Excellent service, great feedback and recommendations by the deed preparer, and I really appreciate the personalized service. The website is amazing, everything is well thought out, and all messages are saved, clear and easy to read. I wish my website was so easy to navigate! Seriously, the person who worked on my account is awesome. They made recommendations about what to include and what not to include. They didn't make me feel dumb for asking questions about out-of-state service and filing procedures, and I will be using Deeds.com exclusively on my cases. Five stars !
