This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax professionals with guidance on the challenges of the global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI) provisions under current tax law and the recent GILTI High-Tax Exception. The panel will discuss IRS final regulations and the high-tax exception, treatment of controlled foreign corporation (CFC) income, and reporting requirements for individual and non-C corporation taxpayers subject to GILTI, as well as provide tax planning tips to minimize the tax liability of taxpayers with CFC interests.


Tax reform significantly expanded the application of Subpart F and added a new inclusion rule for CFC income--the GILTI rule.

GILTI is not limited to intangible or low-taxed income, as it generally consists of all of a CFC's net income, less Subpart F income, a 10 percent return on depreciable tangible assets, and a few other exclusions. A U.S. person who is a shareholder owning at least 10 percent of a CFC is subject to U.S. federal income tax on a share of the CFC's GILTI under IRC Section 951A. Individuals can experience higher tax rates on GILTI when compared to domestic C corporations.

Also, the IRS recently issued regulations to address the treatment of income subject to high foreign tax rates. The regulations shine a light on aspects of the GILTI high-tax exclusion and conforming them with the Subpart F high-tax exception. They also provide for an election under Sec. 954(b)(4) for purposes of both Subpart F income and tested income.

Listen as our panel provides tax professionals with guidance on the challenges of the GILTI provisions under the new tax law. The panel will discuss GILTI and the Section 250 deduction, particularly for individual taxpayers, and provide tax planning tips to minimize the tax liability of taxpayers with CFC interests.
