<<Is there a limit on the value of (cash) gifts that I can receive before I have to pay tax on the gift? Is this per gift or per year? What rate do I have to pay (as if it were extra income or is there a special rate?) My parents are wanting to send me some money (they live in the UK if that complicates things?) and I would like to find out if I am going to be hit for taxes on that money....>>The U.S. gift tax applies to the giver, not the recipient. And if the giver is neither a citizen nor a resident of the U.S., there's no U.S. gift tax on the giver, either. Furthermore, the recipient of a gift doesn't have to report income for U.S. income tax purposes, no matter how large the gift is.
