How Uniform Gifts/Transfers to Minors (UGMA/UTMA) Works

  • Invest up to $14,000 per year tax free ($28,000 per year for married tax payers, filing jointly) per beneficiary. There are no annual contribution limits.
  • If the child is under age 19, the first $1,000 of the child's investment income is free from federal income tax; the second $1,000 is taxed at the child's rate. Income over $2,000 is taxed at the parents' marginal tax rate.
  • Gifts to the child are irrevocable.
  • The child receives legal control of the assets generally at age 18 or 21, depending on the state, and can spend the money as he or she wishes.
  • UGMA/UTMA accounts are considered assets of the child. This means they have a higher impact on financial aid eligibility than 529 plans or Coverdell accounts.
