They have to disclose the long term cap gains on the property on their US tax return. They can have a local real estate appraiser help them with the value of the property in 1991. If this sale is taxable in Romania, then they have to make sure they comply with those rules. If they pay tax there, it can be claimed as an FTC on the US return. Also examine the Romania-US Tax Treaty and see what it says. If she is a dual citizen, does that add to to or help her with tax compliance burden, look into that. Also in 1991, was the property a gift or inheritance with a value = or > $100,000? Then did they file a F3520?
