I am an international student and I am planning to marry on Sep this year. what I want to ask is if we decide to file our tax married jointly, IRS is gonna tax on my money which was sent from my parent for my school? Because I can't work here, my parents send my money 1500 dollars a month for living and 7000 dollars a year for the school. It is almost 25000 dollars a year. Do I have to report the money from my parents if I file married jointly?
The money you receive from your parents is a gift and is not taxable income on your return.
