For an EB5 investment, can I use funds I obtained as a gift? If so, is there a limit to the amount of money from gifts that can be used?


Gifted money is acceptable. One would need a “gift letter” verifying that repayment is not required or expected, and one will need to be able to demonstrate in great detail how the person who provided the gift acquired the money. Also, if any gift tax is owned, one may need to provide evidence that it was paid. There is no limit to the amount of gifted money that may be used for EB5 purposes. (13.Nov.2017)
