    Foreign individuals and entities invest in U.S. real estate for a wide range of reasons. What is peculiar is that most don’t seek tax or legal advice prior to investing. Big mistake.

    The U.S. income and estate tax rules are applied quite differently to foreigners than to Americans. In order to make the most of your investment in U.S. real estate, you have to understand how the U.S. will tax it and plan accordingly.

    In this webinar discuss we how the U.S. taxes foreigners with U.S. real estate, common planning techniques, and some restructuring options in event you are already invested and didn’t do proper planning.
