When sending money to the U.S., also known as a wire transfer to the USA, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply depending on many factors including:


  • how the money is going to be used

  • how much you are sending

  • the source of the funds

  • if the money has been taxed elsewhere


For example, for tax purposes, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums as a gift.
