I am australian citizen now, but 10 years ago I was leaving and working overseas. I recently received a payment from an employer I was working with before to come here. I thought that money will be lost but now it is sitting into and account in my name overseas and I want to bring that money here. My question is, Do I have to pay tax over that amount? If so How much it will be?. The amount I want to bring is US$20,000.00. Thanks
