There are numerous tax considerations tied to immigration and residency status. When an individual becomes a U.S. citizen – or forfeits that status – there are income tax as well as estate and gift tax implications. This program reviews the tax and immigration considerations relevant when individuals enter or leave the United States, including a review of pre-immigration concerns for E-2 and other investors commencing American taxpayer status, expatriation tax considerations for individuals renouncing American tax status, and prospective immigration-side options for individuals choosing to reject U.S. taxpayer status. This program will benefit tax attorneys with immigrant clients and immigration attorneys seeking to understand their client’s tax issues.
