February 2021 International Tax Lunch: Asset Taxation During and After Expatriation

Asset Taxation During and After Expatriation

Covered expatriates are subject to the exit tax. There are several different ways that the exit tax is implemented. In this presentation, we will review how different types of assets will be taxed upon expatriation and in the aftermath. We will identify assets that create bad tax results or timing problems that lead to high tax rates, and we’ll discuss steps to avoid those problems. We will also review the tax paperwork you can expect to file after expatriation.

International Tax Lunch: Partnership Investment in US Real Estate by Nonresidents

How can you structure foreign investments in U.S. real estate when you have a group of foreign investors, or a mix of foreign and domestic investors? Capital gains, rental income, and estate tax considerations for the foreign investors are significantly different, and a partnership’s tax compliance is more difficult with foreign partners. This session reviews some methods for structuring foreign equity and debt investment into U.S. real estate, in group settings — rather than the lone investor situation.

International Tax Lunch: Solving Individual Problems with Tax Treaties

Tax treaties between the United States and other countries cover a variety of topics, including income. The treaties create a parallel Federal tax law to the Internal Revenue Code, and sometimes it is useful to opt out of the Code and into the treaties for tax planning purposes. In this presentation, we will focus on individual taxpayers: when are tax treaty elections permitted, how you make an election, and how you decide whether making a treaty election is a good idea.
