Structuring Your U.S. Real Property Investment – A Primer

On August 25, 2020, at 12:00 pm (Eastern Time), join us for a webinar with U.S. tax attorney Alexey Manasuev, LL.M. (Int’l Tax), NYU, TEP who will discuss tax-efficient structuring alternatives for investing in U.S. real property by Canadians and other U.S. nonresidents.


Who Will Benefit From Attending This Webinar?

This webinar is intended for real estate investors, individuals and business owners, their trusted advisors and tax professionals. The content is especially relevant to U.S. tax and Canadian tax advisors who are assisting their clients in addressing U.S. tax and cross-border implications related to investment in, management of, and disposition of U.S. real property interests.


Topics Covered in This Webinar.

The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (“FIRPTA”) has long redefined the taxation of foreign businesses and nonresident alien individuals who enter into transactions involving U.S. real estate. In some instances, even when FIRPTA withholding is not required, the reporting and FIRPTA withholding filing requirements are quite substantial. Failure to comply may lead to adverse penalties and substantive tax liability. Understanding the applicable FIRPTA framework and doing due diligence when making investment in U.S. real property are keys to successful tax-efficient structuring of your purchase. We will discuss how to structure U.S. real property investment, review practical considerations relevant to real property management, and outline key tax considerations relevant to one’s exit strategy.


Here’s just a sample of what we’ll cover during this webinar:

  • FIRPTA background;
  • Overview of structuring alternatives, including their pros and cons, for making investment in U.S. real property;
  • FIRPTA withholding and IRS Withholding Certificate applications on Form 8288-B;
  • Retroactive penalty relief;
  • Claims for early refund;
  • U.S. tax compliance tips and practical considerations;
  • … and more!
