When my husband passed away unexpectedly, my sister and my brother-in-law helped pay for his funeral expenses.  They aren’t expecting repayment, but I have saved and budgeted and would like to pay them back.  They are both retired.  I want to know how much I can give them at a time so they won’t have to report the money as income on their income taxes.

Thank you.

I need to clarify my question.  My sister and brother-in-law didn’t pay the entire amount of his funeral.  I just want to repay them the portion they did contribute.  I want to be sure when I do repay them that I don’t cause them to have to report my repayments to them as income.  I am gifting them.  I won’t be gifting them their entire portion at once. I will be gifting them in increments.  I am only concerned that my gifts are not too much at a time.
