I am wondering about tax implications of money gift transfer

This answer was rated:

I am wondering about tax implications of money gift transfer from my mother who is a citizen of another country

Anne :

Thank you for using justanswer

Anne :

you would NOT have to pay any type of tax, since under IRS regs, the donor is responsible for any tax due, not the recipient

Anne :

However, since your mother is not a US citizen or Resident alien, she is not required to file any gift tax form (or any other form)

Customer:

I am the mother who wants to send to her daughter of $150,000 as a gift to finance her purchase of an apartment. My daughter is an American citizen and I is a citizen of Russia. Waht would be tax implications for my daughter?

Anne :

I'm sorry that I just assumed that it was the recipient that would be asking......

Customer:

No, I am writing you from Mosocw, but O.K. I am consern with my daughter who will be a receiver of money

Anne :

I am looking at current IRS regs to finish my answer to you.....please wait just a moment?

Customer:

Dear XXXXX, the US Tax Law is not very clear on that. Waht about limitations of the amount received by an American as a gift from abroad

Anne :

That's what I was looking for........the $ amount

Anne :

Your daughter would need to file Form 3520 if she receives more than $100,000 dollars from a non US citizen

Anne :

This form has NO tax associated with it

Anne :

it is just an information form for the IRS

Customer:

Thank you very much

Anne :

I gave you the link to the form, but again, this is an informational form only

Anne :

You are most welcome
