This is an continuation of my original question: My Father's

This is an continuation of my original question: My Father's family never acknowledged me as his daughter. I have had zero contact with any of them. The last time I spoke to my Father was 21 years ago. He wasn't a perfect Father but he was my Father none-the-less. His assets are substantial. His sister has no intention of giving me anything. She is very wealthy and I believe she will spend a considerable amount of money and time to make sure I do not inherit one penny. I think I am in for an uphill battle unless I have the law on my side.

I herniated a house from my father on 9.15.1994. I immigrated to the US and became a US citizen in 2015. I am planning to sell the house and transfer the money to the US, but wonder if I have to pay the income tax. And if I have to pay, how much it will be?I have heard from the US embassy employee in my home country that I don't have to pay tax (it is new law) since I had i the house before I became a US citizen, not sure how accurate the information is.Would you please advise ? Thank you,
