Justipedia explains Voluntary Transfer
Many people will effect voluntary transfers of property when they are old to their children so that the children do not have to pay inheritance tax. Any normal conveyance of property is referred to in this way. There are different fees from one state to the next relating to the cost of transferring property and are usually linked to the value of the property.
