C. Tax Credit for Donor's Taxes Paid to a Foreign Country (Sec. 101 (C), NIRC as amended)

In General. - The tax imposed by this Title upon a donor who was a citizen or a resident
at the time of donation shall be credited with the amount of any donor's tax of any
character and description imposed by the authority of a foreign country.
Limitations on Credit. - The amount of the credit taken under this Section shall be
subject to each of the following limitations:

by the provincial and city assessor (MV per Tax Declaration), whichever is higher. (Sec. 88 and 102,

at the time of the gift
4. For purposes of Donors Tax, what does the term Net Gift mean?
For purposes of the donors tax, NET GIFT shall mean the net economic benefit from the transfer that
accrues to the donee. Accordingly, if a mortgaged property is transferred as a gift, but imposing upon

property referred to in Section 24 (D) for less than adequate and full consideration?

transferred for less than adequate and full consideration in money or moneys worth, then the amount
by which the fair market value of the property exceeded the value of the consideration shall, for the
