From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Under U.S. Federal law, 26 USC 102(c) governs the income tax treatment, by an employee, of gifts received by an employee from his or her employer. While gifts are typically exempt from gross income under U.S. federal income tax law, this is not usually so for gifts received from employers. Under Internal Revenue Code section 102(c), gifts transferred by or for an employer to, or for the benefit of, an employee, cannot generally be excluded from gross income.[1]

There are some statutory exceptions to this rule, for example, in the case of de minimis fringe amounts [2] and for achievement awards.[3]
