Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Please give me a moment to prepare your response.
If you sold the home the FIRPTA withholding would be 15% of the sales price or $45,000. You would need to complete a tax return to receive a refund of this withholding.
If the house is sold for $300,000 or less there would not be any withholding. If it is above $300,000 then the 15% FIRPTA withholding is required.
