International tax planning
Have a sound global tax strategy.
Tax and estate issues can be highly technical and complex for individuals and entities that conduct business across national borders. Lourie & Cutler’s international tax and estate planning practice assists U.S. citizens and domestic entities in their activities abroad; we also assist foreign nationals and foreign entities with a presence in the U.S.. Our services include:
- Legal issues that arise when U.S. nationals receive non-U.S. income or have an offshore presence. Our attorneys are highly experienced in the breadth of legal issues, including special tax and information reporting requirements, that apply to U.S. nationals with interests in offshore business entities, investments, or estate planning vehicles such as trusts.
- Legal issues that arise when foreign nationals receive U.S. income or have a domestic tax presence. We also advise foreign nationals who have a tax presence in the U.S., either through their investments, their business activities, or interests in domestic trusts and estates.
- The interaction of U.S. and foreign estate and gift tax laws. Our attorneys can assist in interpreting the special rules derived from treaties and other international arrangements. We assist both U.S. nationals living abroad and foreign nationals living in the U.S. with their estate and tax planning while staying mindful and vigilante of the interaction between U.S. and other applicable tax and inheritance laws.
For more than 75 years, we have helped our clients pursue global opportunities. We have developed expertise and formed professional connections in many countries, and we are prepared to provide you with the best strategy to manage your most complex international tax issues.
