In this webinar we will explain what types of income are subject to withholding, the amounts that need to be withheld, how tax treaties can affect the amount to be withheld, how withholding is reported to the recipient, how withholding is paid and reported to the IRS, who is responsible for the tax, as well as the penalties for noncompliance

The form, technically known as “Information Return of U.S. Persons with Respect to Certain Foreign Corporations”, must be completed by U.S. citizens and residents who are officers, directors, or shareholders in certain foreign corporations. If not filed, the penalties, can be steep. https://esquiregroup.com/foreign-corporation-irs-coming/

Recently I met with a potential client who was interested in hiring us to prepare his final U.S. tax return after having abandoned his green card. Lucky for him that he came to us, because upon reviewing his situation, we discovered errors that could have classified him as a covered expatriate, which could have cost him dearly. https://esquiregroup.com/expatriated-long-term-resident-almost-bankrupted-shoddy-tax-prep/

Like most people, every time I have to exchange one currency for another, I cringe because I know those thieves, e.g. bankers – my bankers excluded, of course! – are about to financially offend me with their exchange rates and fees. But what other choice does anyone have when making these transactions other than the bank? Read more: https://esquiregroup.com/currency-exchange-brokers-friends-foes/

Did you know that as an American living and working abroad, the IRS offers certain foreign housing exclusions/deductions that can help defray some of your housing expenses? We will use the following hypothetical case, to explain how the foreign housing exclusion/deduction works and why it is important to hire a tax professional specialized in international taxation.

Have you ever seen one of those movies where someone finds out they had a long lost relative who died and left their entire estate to them? Did you ever dream how nice it would be if you discovered a long-lost relative left you a fortune? As with many things, taxes can sometimes turn a dream into a nightmare!

If you are one of those “Accidental Americans”—born in the U.S. but lived your whole life abroad—you may have some tax reporting requirements that need to be addressed. You may also may have been told that there is a simple way to bring yourself into compliance by using the streamline filing method.

Saving money on complicated tax returns can cost you dearly in the long run. In this case the accountant was not familiar with foreign tax issues, he totally botched the returns with numerous mistakes, and those mistakes appear to have triggered an IRS audit. http://esquiregroup.com/you-get-what-you-pay-for-dont-go-cheap-when-it-comes-to-tax-compliance/

Several years ago, a client, let’s call him Flynn, hired us to prepare his final tax return before expatriating. I wanted to share his story to serve as a cautionary tale to everyone out there who is planning on expatriating without the advice of an international tax advisor.

Imagine this, you are the managing director a small consulting firm in Hong Kong. One day, while going through your mail you come across a letter from your local bank where you maintain your accounts telling you that if you don’t provide them with U.S. tax Form W-8BEN-E within a week, they are going to close your corporate account. Due to FATCA, foreign entities are now required to complete this form or their banks will close their accounts.

Celebrity, power, fortune--sounds nice. Many people strive to achieve these goals, not fully prepared that they come at a steep price—the loss of privacy, fear for the safety of self and family, and even a threat of frivolous lawsuits. So what can someone like David Beckham, Brad Pitt, or Beyoncé do to protect themselves?

Unfortunately, most companies think that in order to sell in the U.S. you need a U.S. company – absolutely not true! In fact, there are substantial advantages – especially from a tax standpoint – to doing business with the U.S. from outside the U.S. Foreign businesses selling to the U.S. can often do so with far less tax than U.S. companies selling in the U.S. Read more:

It seems the scammers are starting earlier than usual with phishing scams—emailing you using what appears to be an official IRS seal and asking you to enter the IRS site through a link they have provided. http://nomoretaxtrouble.com/blog/vultures-circling/

When you participate in a U.S. qualified retirement plan, the IRC offers you a number of tax benefits that include exclusion or deduction from gross income for contributions. These rules don’t apply to foreign pension plans, which are generally treated as “nonqualified” deferred compensation plans. Read more at:

Patriotism has to do with love or devotion to one’s country not with proximity to that country or even being a citizen of that country…If we think about why people leave the U.S., it is no different than why people moved to the U.S. to begin with or why Americans move from state to state. Marriage; work opportunity; education; travel that led to a commitment to one of the previously mentioned are some of the explanations.

U.S. taxpayers are required to fully cooperate with the IRS in a timely manner or pay the consequences. However, the IRS can not only drag its feet in processing requests, they jeopardize the security of our taxpayer information.

Last week, the U.S. State Department announced that the fee for renouncing U.S. citizenship will increase from $450 to $2,350! The reason for the increase—documenting a renunciation is “extremely costly” and they have been losing money on the deal. Or so they say. In reality the U.S. government wants its final pound of flesh before you leave.

When it comes to FATCA and tax compliance, don't listen to what you want to hear, listen to the truth. There are some unscrupulous advisors out there telling people not to comply with U.S. tax laws because they are unjust. Unjust or not, failure to comply with the law can have severe consequences, from monetary penalties to jail!
