Description :

Our world has become much smaller. From the comfort of our offices we are now able to transact business with major financial centers located on other continents. Taxpayers want to reduce their tax liability as much as possible. If they have to pay foreign taxes, they want to maximize any foreign tax credits that they are entitled to receive. As businesses are becoming more involved in international transactions, companies of all sizes are opening offices or establishing formal relationships with related entities offshore.

The United States tax laws allow exclusions for certain types of income earned abroad. However, the criteria is very strict, and mistakes can wreak havoc on a clients’ or business’s tax bill. This course, which provides an overview of the major international tax issues that affect individuals and small businesses, will cover the following topics:

    • 2015 international tax case review – Williams, McBride, and Moore Cases
    • IRS commissioner’s emphasis on offshore tax evasion
    • IRS tax enforcement international initiatives
    • FATCA and FBAR 2014 and 2015 developments
    • Tax havens – impact
    • Tax treaty developments
    • Foreign earned income exclusion
    • Corporate international tax evasion
    • Foreign tax rates – How does the U.S. compare?
    • Competent Authority Update
    • More
