Join us for a NEW two-day seminar on the rules that apply to foreign investors in U.S. real property as well as the latest developments affecting the area. Leading practitioners in the area will review the basics and build through a variety of common investment situations including investment in oil and gas property, investments by specialized types of investors such as foreign governments and foreign not-for-profit organizations, investments in special vehicles such as Real Estate Investment Trusts. Foreign persons investing in the United States potentially must focus on the tax rules in three jurisdictions: their home country, a country through which they might invest, and the United States.
All paid attendees will receive the Bloomberg BNA Portfolio:
U.S. Taxation of Foreign Investment in U.S. Real Estate (Portfolio 912-2nd)
*One Portfolio per paid attendee. Quantities are limited.
Benefits of Attending:
• Learn about the federal, state and local tax rules as well as the impact of U.S. income tax treaties, tax planning in the investor’s home country, and disclosure and reporting obligations including the new FinCEN rules and local reporting requirements
• Examine the rules governing investments in U.S. oil and gas properties and REITs, as well as investments by foreign governments and foreign exempt organizations
• Review a number of real-life case studies in a workshop session that will bring together the rules in a cohesive and user-friendly manner
Why You Should Attend
The United States taxing rules are complex. In addition, there are broad withholding tax rules that create many potential problems and pitfalls. Common issues, best practices and other approaches to dealing with issues will be discussed. This seminar will have multiple case studies as well as a detailed question and answer detail period for questions proposed by attendees.
Who Should Attend
This seminar will provide live group instruction by leading tax practitioners in the field. It is intended for tax practitioners, real estate professionals, and advisors who assist foreign persons investing in the United States real property to understand the rules that they face and planning that can facilitate such an investment and properly address their clients’ needs. This program is both transitional and transactional. It is appropriate for young practitioners, experienced practitioners but not in the area and those who have material experience in advising clients on investing in U.S. real property. There are no prerequisites for this program.
