Hi, my father is not a U.S. citizen, and is planning to distribute

Resolved Question:

Hi, my father is not a U.S. citizen, and is planning to distribute some of his cash holdings to me and my sister.
He lives in Jordan, and if he does do that, I am planning to transfer my share to the U.S. to my U.S. accounts. I am a U.S. citizen.
Are these taxable? Are there any considerations that I have to take into account…??
Thanks a million

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.com

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

Hi

MyVirtualCPA :

No, these transfers are not taxable to you - but if you receive more than $100,000 you will need to report the amount to the IRS on form 3520

MyVirtualCPA :

But no tax is due

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

So it is just a matter of reporting

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, just a matter of reporting. No tax is due as it is a gift

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

it might be around $700 K

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, not taxable to you but definitely reportable

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

So, what kind of documents do I need to have to file

MyVirtualCPA :

Form 3520

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

Are there any additional proof needed to attach to the form?

MyVirtualCPA :

No, there's not

MyVirtualCPA :

it's a gift

JACUSTOMER-rza3p7mm- :

Cool… That great… how can I get additional advise from you in the future?
