Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
The quickest way to do this would be a wire transfer directly from your French bank account to your US bank account.
Your bank should not charge a large fee for this.
The receiving bank should not charge any fees for the receipt of the wire.
The money will be sent very quickly and you should have access to it within 1 business day of initiating the transfer.
There will be no tax on the transfer, and if your home was sold for a gain you can exclude up to $250,000 of the gain on the sale from taxes ($500,000 if married filing jointly)
How much would it cost to exchange the euros to dollars and is that a percentage or a flat fee?
That depends on your bank. Some banks may do it for free, others may charge a flat fee, and others a percentage. You would have to contact your bank and find that out.
Thanks for your help....
