Hi Alan,

My brother wants to gift me around $60K to help me buy a condo here, he works and lives in Dubai and not expecting me to return it to him. Do you recommend that we sign a gift deed confirming that ” the gift is being made from his own past savings, irrevocable, no repayment is expected and I am free to utilize it in any manner” ?

Do it need to be notarized or witnessed from a lawyer, I just don’t want to end up paying tax on this money transfer. thanks
