IRS Gift Tax Limit for 2011, 2012 - This way, donor or donee

Less than $13,000 gift- no tax

Minn. waitress reclaims $12,000 tip after dispute with the Moorhead, MN Police Dept.

Story link

So... the cops decided to give the money back- how interesting on several levels:

1- They had no probable cause for taking the money in the first place (they just took it because they think they can).

2- What's up with this check payback to her? Shouldn't evidence be held and locked up at least during an 'investigation'... what happened to her cash? Did they bank it, already thinking it was their money?

3- Who, if anyone, is going to pay for her lawyer's fees, unless her lawyer did/is working on her case on a 'pro bono' basis?

4- If the cops decided to give it back most likely due to media pressure, and no doubt emails and phone calls to the precinct, (sometimes the media is good for something), are the jerks who tried to rip her off to begin with, going to be suspended during an investigation? I don't see anything going on there!

You can see that our greedy law enforcement is getting out of hand and has the mentality now of, what's ours is ours and what's yours is ours- but then... look at who their mentors are... our government!

And I wonder why the citizens of our country, aren't putting pressure like what was done for this waitress on a massive scale, to set our government straight on important issues- just wonder'n!

It seems like more and more people aren't too trusting of cops these days
