Inheritance Question

Post by eeyore » Sat Jan 19, 2019 1:05 pm

Our family lives in Canada and we're all dual citizens (Canada/U.S.). We recently received inheritance money from a U.S. citizen ($15K US for parents, $12K US for each of the four kids).

Are there any tax or reporting requirements on the U.S. side. other than the FBAR and (potentially) Form 8938?

Inheritances from US estates are part of the final estate tax return, not those inheriting.

The gifts appear to be well-below the tax threshold
