If you receive a gift or inheritance from a foreign person (nonresident alien) or from a foreign estate and the total amount during the year exceeds $100,000, you are required to report the gift on Form 3520.
Usually, receipt of gifts is not taxable.
If you inherit property, when you sell the property you will report the sale and pay any capital gains tax that may be due at that time. You will want to make a note of the FMV of the property on the date of death and will use that as your basis when you sell. You will pay capital gains tax on the amount that is the difference between the selling price and the FMV at time of death. For example, if the property was worth $150,000 at the time of death and you sell the property 3 years from now for $200,000, you will pay capital gains tax on $50,000. Likewise, if the property was worth $150,000 at the time of death and you sell the property within a month for $150,000, there would be no gain.
