INBOUND US INVESTMENT AND PRE-IMMIGRATION TAX PLANNING FOR THE LATAM CLIENT
ROBERT F. HUDSON, JR.
Managing Partner and Senior Tax Partner of the Miami office of
Baker & McKenzie LLP
1. Foreign investment in US real estate structuring. This topic will address the widely different US tax results that will apply depending upon the choice of entities and debt elements used by the non-US investor, ranging from the quite simple and direct options thru highly sophisticated (and more complex) structures that produce better than normal US tax consequences, even for foreign corporate investors and those seeking public confidentiality regarding their US real estate interests
.2. Pre-immigration US tax Planning. This second topic addresses the traps for the unwary and tax planning opportunities that a non-US person can avail themselves in the calendar year before they may first become a US tax resident, including stepping up the basis of highly appreciated assets, ensuring that passive income generating assets will not be subject to CFC and PFIC regimes, that significant foreign tax credits will be usable once in the US, estate tax planning techniques are not overlooked and similar US income, gift and estate tax planning issues.
