As the global economy expands, foreign individuals’ contacts with the United States are rapidly increasing, placing those individuals, often unwittingly, in play in the U.S. tax system. This program will review the impact of U.S. contacts on U.S. income tax residency and estate and gift tax domicile; the expanding substantive taxation rules and procedural responsibilities for foreigners with U.S. personal, investment and business contacts; planning opportunities, increasing enforcement efforts and unanticipated tax pitfalls for such foreigners and their families; foreign-based solutions for foreign nationals; and planning and legislative developments for U.S. tax residents and citizens who are increasing their foreign activities and severing their U.S. contacts. Learn from the perspective of the U.S. advisor addressing these issues for clients, emphasizing the substantial ethics and professional responsibility considerations that abound when planning in the cross border arena.
