What is the source of this money?
Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The source of this money is from my job, money that my wife and I have saved. My wife is Chinese from mainland China and occasionly we send money to her family in China, about $5,000 per year. Now, a Chinese friend of my wife (also from mainland China) wants to use my wife name to send money to her family in China, her reason is that she doesn't want her husband to find out,( I think she is lying) what I need to know is there any thing wrong with my wife doing this? Or are there unlawful consequence's that I don't know about? Robert H. Davis

There is nothing wrong in sending this money and also you do not have to inform IRS or any government officials. YOu only need to be concerned that these funds are not sent out for some illegal/unlawful purpose.
