Best Practices for Foreign Investors in U.S. Commercial Real Estate
Lawyers, investment bankers, fund managers, and others who represent foreign investors in U.S. real estate must plan for the tax consequences under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA). There are also many other U.S. tax reporting and compliance requirements that apply to inbound U.S. real property investors.
That’s why Wagner, Duys & Wood has written a comprehensive guide to understanding some additional requirements that may apply beyond FIRPTA. The guide addresses some key considerations and the best practices to minimize the risk of liability for noncompliance by planning in advance. The guide is free — you can download it now!
