if i receive a gift of $140,000 from overseas from a non U.S person do I or they have to pay tax?

Robin D. :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,

Robin D. :

You would not need to pay taxes but you would be required to report the gift if you are a US person.

Robin D. :

You would report the gift on form 3520

Robin D. :

The non US person would not owe any US tax on the gift

Customer:

will they have to pay a tax. will be coming in from ireland

Robin D. :

They would not be under US taxation. I can check if Ireland has a gift tax. One sec

Customer:

thanks for checking

Robin D. :

No problem, Ireland does have a Gift tax but their tax is on the receiver if the receiver is resident in Ireland or has been resident in the last 5 years.

Robin D. :

I fyou are not resident in Ireland and have not been resident in the past 5 years you would not owe them tax. I need to check our tax treaty now.

Customer:

Robin D. :

Sorry but we do not speak on the phone or have contact away from this Q&A (site regs).

Robin D. :

Sorry I was reading through the treaty

I am trying to make sure that the tax would not fall to the giver

Robin D. :

Sometimes the country will tax the giver (if they are resident) when they cannot tax the receiver

Customer:

Robin D. :

This is fine

Robin D. :

He can come to this Q&A too if he wants to post another question but I am still scanning through the Irish law on the gift tax and the treaty
