      I've written a cookbook to raise funds for my mother - who has been diagnosed with Stage IV Adenocarcinoma. After getting the runaround from WI State and then the IRS I have been told that not only would I be taxed (considered income - although all funds would go to my mother) income tax, but also sales and gift tax. And she would also be taxed (she is in Germany) international tax. Basically there would be nothing left for her. I keep getting different answers from everyone. Is there anyone out there that really knows their "stuff" and can give me concrete information. I would very much appreciate it. I'm just trying to help my mom with expenses.
