Due to changes made in the tax system, starting January 1, 2016, when sending money overseas if you have multiple relatives living overseas who are applicable for tax exemption for dependents, documentation per each relative is necessary. If sending money to one representative, then only that one person may be recognized as a dependent. Therefore, the recipient of the specified bank account holder only will be recognized as a dependent.
