This amount will be reported in the IRS tax filing as the amount will be more than $10,000. Does the person also need to pay tax in USA ?
#2; If the person's tax rate in USA is say 18% what is the tax amount if at all IRS demands ? Appreciate your response.
#1;he needs to file form td f 90.22.1, FBAR and he may claim his taxes that he paid to Indian taxing authortities on his US return either on 1116 or sch A of 1040.
#2;no he is not subject to double taxation as a US resident.
#3;then his LTCG rate is 0% so he can claim what he paid to Indias US on his US return since Indian tax rate is higher than US tax rate of 0%
