We understand that the tax situation for multi-national families and those on foreign assignment is often complicated and frustrating. The U.S. tax scheme of worldwide taxation is extremely complex and the international information reporting required with regard to foreign wealth structures and the underlying entities can be very provoking, especially as it relates to foreign trusts, foreign financial asset reporting and foreign financial account disclosures. It’s a mine field, particularly for those individuals from civil and Sharia law jurisdictions.
The U.S. tax system with regard to the foreign tax credits, income exclusions and the various tax treaties is also a difficult situation for those working on foreign assignment. At Prager Metis, our tax professionals will work with you and your family advisors to understand your unique situation and establish a comprehensive tax strategy suited to your specific circumstances. We will provide options and thoroughly explain each so you can make decisions that are most comfortable for you.
