James McDonald, "cooljames" on a number of websites and "Jimmy Cash" when answering emails, claims to be an Animal Control Officer who graduated from Rio Hondo Police Academy. So, if he attended police academy, why is he up to his ears in shady financial dealings and running his own cash gifting club in defiance of state law?

An individual may give as a "cash gift" up to $12,000 USD total, to as many individuals as that individual desires within a calendar year. While these gifts are non-taxable, and need not be reported to the IRS, there are conditions. In order to be deemed non-taxable, the cash gift must be given without the expectation of receiving anything in return."
Gift taxes are taxes on gifted money or property that supplement the estate tax. Gift taxes are placed on gifts given to any person while you are still living, and only apply on gifts of certain value. Starting January, 2009 a person may gift up to $13,000 in cash or assets to an unlimited number of people each year without incurring gift tax liability. The gift tax exclusion is indexed for cost-of-living.
The concept of private gifting is based upon the fact that both American and Canadian citizens have the Constitutional right to gift property, cash and other assets, and are subject to the rules and regulations established by the laws. The U.S. gifting rules are found in the IRS Tax Code, Title 26, Sections 2501-2504 and 2511.
