HelloIf your son in Australia gives you more than $100,000 you would have to report the gift using form 3520. Gifts under that amount are not required to be reported.You would not be taxed on the gift.You can accept the gift but you just need to know about reporting if it is more than $100,000.You are required to click a positive rating if I am to be credited with the response.You have to actively click on a rating and click submit.
