How much money can my parents give me before it's taxable?

A gift to you is normally not taxable to you. However, if the gift exceeds the annual gift exclusion amount, the giver will have to file a gift tax return. This amount is $14,000 for both 2013 and 2014. The gift isn’t likely to be taxed anyway due to the lifetime estate / gift tax exclusion, which is over $5 million.  

The annual and lifetime exclusions are per person. So, your parents together can give you $28,000 without them having to file a gift tax return.
