Many successful people come to the United States from other countries, either permanently or on study or work assignments that are intended to last just for a few years. These people may earn income in the United States and acquire assets here, while also maintaining income and property back home. Moving to the U.S. can have profound tax consequences for individuals and their families, as people with sufficient U.S. contacts may find that their worldwide income and assets are subject to U.S. income, gift and estate taxes and that they are required to disclose financial accounts and business investments kept abroad. Ignorance of the laws of their new home can be costly.

Meritas member firm Goulston & Storrs PC will provide a practical overview of the U.S. tax and inheritance rules that may be of most interest to wealthy individuals and families who are coming to (and perhaps staying in) America. The presentation also will discuss some estate planning techniques that visitors to the country may use to lessen their own tax burdens and those of their descendants.

This program is intended both for U.S. and internationally based member firms. Participants will gain the tools necessary to issue-spot for their clients with respect to these important concepts. See less -
