Hi James,

I don't have all your answers, just some thoughts:

Assuming you're a US citizen, you've already paid whatever income tax applies/applied to the funds in the account in question in whatever year you acquired same... And assuming, yearly, you've been filing a Form TD F 90-22.1 Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, as required...then your only concerns re: converting the funds & having them sent would be a good conversion rate and whether or not other restrictions apply on the movement of significant cash amounts into the US. I don't believe the latter is an IRS issue.
