Crossing Borders: Developments in Foreign Trusts and Foreign Accounts Reporting
In the wake of the highly publicized challenges that the IRS has recently faced in collectinginformation about accounts held by US persons outside the US, the HIRE Act imposed new, farreaching reporting rules for foreign accounts and assets owned by US persons, and it essentially taxes the use of property held in a foreign trust. In this session, we will review these rules, the planning implications, and other cross-border tax issues affecting executives and other individuals, as well as trusts and their beneficiaries.
