Personal Tax

Personal tax compliance is an important facet of modern financial life. In the U.S., personal tax laws create significant complexities as people move and work in different places in the United States where they not only have federal but also state tax obligations.

A myriad of complex rules apply to foreign income derived by United States persons – such as income derived by Foreign Grantor Trusts, Grantor Trusts, Controlled Foreign Corporations and Passive Foreign Investment Companies. In addition the requirements of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has made tax reporting and compliance a critical issue for U.S. persons – where significant administrative penalties can be levied by the Internal Revenue Service for non-compliance or late lodgement.

The complexities of international tax compliance can create significant challenges for those who have not been well advised or who are simply not aware of their obligations.
