An Introduction to US Foreign Tax Credits

There are a series of foreign tax credits that US citizens can benefit from when filing for their US taxes.

During this webinar, which took place on Thursday, August 22 at 12:00 pm London BST, our favorite tag team of experts on US tax guided us on the ins and outs of the US foreign tax credit system.

Some of the questions tackled included:

  • What are the various baskets available?
  • How do foreign tax credits differ to the foreign earned income exclusion?
  • When can foreign taxes be deductible?
  • How do international tax treaties incorporate foreign tax credits?
  • How can the average taxpayer determine source and the countries that allow foreign tax credits?
  • What is the foreign branch basket and how does it affect individuals with small Schedule C businesses?
  • And plenty more!
