Disposing of a Foreign Disregarded Entity: Tax Challenges and Reporting Requirements
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This course will identify specific tax issues surrounding the sale of a foreign entity. Our panel of foreign tax veterans will explain steps that taxpayers can take to lessen the taxes paid when selling stock or assets held overseas, including critical elections. The panel will also review required, but sometimes overlooked, U.S. information reporting obligations.
- Dispositions of a foreign disregarded entity
- Specific tax considerations by entity type
- Income tax considerations
- Section 1060 asset sales
- Section 469 passive loss limitations
- Foreign tax Credit Limitations
The panel will review these and other critical issues:
- The manner in which the following tax items are determined:
- The character of the gain arising from the sale transaction, as either long-term capital gain or ordinary income,
- The manner of bifurcating the gain between those two categories,
- The tax rate applicable to each type of income category, and
- The source of the resulting long-term capital gain and ordinary income for purposes of applying the foreign tax credit provisions of U.S. tax law for income taxes paid to Spain in connection with the transaction.
- The extent to which Mr. A may deduct the deferred losses from the Resort V business that have been reported on U.S. Federal income tax returns filed for each year in which Resort V was owned against the gain arising from the sale of the shares of S Co in view of the limitations imposed by the Passive Activity Loss rules under Code §469.
