Money received from sale of inherited property from another country (philippines)

I might receive almost $80,000 from sale of inherited property in the Philippines. Will I get taxed here in the U.S. even if I already paid inheritance tax and other applicable taxes in the Philippines? .. Thank you for answering

If you inherited the property and then sold it, you are taxed on any gain on the property. To the extent the same gain was taxed by the Philippines, you can claim a foreign tax credit on Form 1116.

If the estate owned the property; sold it, and then gave you money because you were a beneficiary of the estate, the money is not taxable.

You are also required to report the inherited assets on Form 3520 if you meet the $100,000 reporting threshold.
