Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thank you for your quick reply. I was confused because I heard there is only a $13k tax credit for non resident alien decedents. I was afraid I could be on the hook being the recipient of the US asset. A joint bank account with right to survivorship would be easy to set up. Could the IRS argue this is a gift completed in the US and tax me as the recipient. I hope this doesn't sound paranoid.
