Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
How are you today, Yana?
As you are a resident of the United States, you are taxed the same way a citizen is.
Gifts are never taxable to the recipient, and your sister has no tax obligation to the US so there is no gift tax return even filed
Also, since the amount you are receiving is below $100,000 there is no need to file form 3520 to report the gift
There is absolutely no tax, state or federal
Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate my response "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
Typically no - but a statement from your sister would be enough to prove that it is a gifrt
No, since the amount is under $100,000
You're welcome. If you would, please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
