My brother works in field of Digital Marketing at Pakistan. His clients are mostly in United States.
His clients normally pay him via wire transfer which works fine but some money gets deducted from him in the process. I live in United States and nowadays visiting home at Pakistan.
Can I have his client send me my brother's pay (which is around $5k-$7k) to my United States based bank account and I pay the equivalent to my brother here in Pakistan in cash. For now, its just a one time thing.
- Is this all legal?
- Will it have any tax related implications on me provided that I have Green Card?
I am not really earning that money. It is kind of like I am paying a loan to my brother and my brother pays me back via someone else. That "someone" happens to be his client in this case.
