I received money gift from parents (US citizen) overseas. They filed form 709 for the money they sent. Do I have to report this in my tax return? Which form do I use?

I received a 1099-INT from the money I received so I know I have to file that but since they're US citizens, does the $200,000 they sent still have to be reported because it was from an overseas account? Everything I read online only mentions Non-US citizens gifting money to US citizens/residents so I have no idea if that rule applies to my situation as well.

there is no requirement for you to file form 3520 ( since your parents  already  have reported ). However, if the  money rests  in a foreign bank  in account where you have  signature authority at least, you may have to report the accounts  for FBAR ( Treasury for  114 ) and/or FATCA ( IRS form 8938 )
