Would this gift be taxable?


C

Confused

My son's HS rowing team gave him a $500 gift for being the outstanding team member. (yes, we are very proud).

Is the gift taxable? They are a nonprofit.

Line 21 Other Income or SE income? I think Line 21. SE income makes
it subject to FICA taxes (15.3%), but allows you to deduct expenses as
well, but this is an award.

Line 21 misc income. He's not in the trade or business of being an oarsman, so no Schedule C.
