taxability of foreign gifts




I have always heard that gifts of foreign donors are not reportable nor
taxable for the US donee unless it is a gift in the form of real estate
located in the USA.

This sounds too good to be true and I am trying to, but have a hard time
finding this confirmed on the IRS website.

If my non-US relative gifts me cash (by wire transfer), in excess of
$100,000, do I, as the recipient:
1. have to report anything?
2. face any tax consequences?

Any input is appreciated.
