Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am here to help you. I am reviewing your question and will respond to you shortly.

Thank you for your question.

As a recipient of a legacy, you don't have to pay any tax on it.. you would receive it free of tax.

You should however alert your receiving bank of the impending receipt to comply with money laundering regulations.

You would only pay tax on any gain you make on the money once invested and or any interest earned on it.

You don't report the inheritance on your tax return either.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
