Questions regarding tax matters should be addressed by an accountant - real estate agents can't give tax advice or legal advice.

What is your specific reference to the gift tax? For a downpayment on a home? Gift tax depends 'form and substance.' Who is giving it and if it is reportable. If you can provide more info, I could be of more help and guidance. However, an accountant, of course, would be the go-to authority for your specific situation in the end.
