I am divorced overseas. Came to US in late 2004. Sold overseas matrimonial hse of 20+yrs recently and want to know if there is any tax liability in WA, USA since overseas hse was bought in 1986 with part of retirement fund from both parties. Sales proceeds were distributed accordingly to our seperate retirement a/c and cash abt $300,000 awarded to me as divorce settlement in march 2009. Got green card in Q3 2008 and single. I am 50 yrs old and renting now. Am living with boyfriend and my kids. Have retirement a/c overseas like 401k and can't draw till retirement. I want to know my tax liability with regards to both issues. Understand if I bring money over to US at retirement age, and it earns interest then it is taxed. Pls confirm too.
