Welcome to Tax Planning for Foreign Investors investing in U.S. Real Estate
This is a web site dedicated to solving tax problems for Foreign Investors in United States real estate.
As a very active practitioner in this area, I will be adding articles of interest regularly. These will be articles like the first and second articles already posted that deal with actual tax issues. These are issues that could apply to every foreigner who is going to invest in real estate and all those that are dealing with them on an everyday basis such as the real estate broker, the real estate attorney, the accountant and other professionals in the field.
If any one of those links in the chain of professionals that are serving the Foreign Investors are unfamiliar with what the Foreigner Investor needs and how to thoroughly protect them, there is room for the possibility of problems. Therefore, I would invite the readers to take advantage of this web site in several ways.
First, if English is not your home language, the subject of investment in U.S. real estate is dealt with in general in eight different languages at the following web site: www.unitedstatestaxation.com. This will provide you with good background.
Second, please read the two new articles posted on the site. They are the first of many articles that will be shown here that may be helpful.
