This course will provide tax professionals with guidance on final and proposed regulations governing foreign source income taxation. The panel will present an in-depth analysis of changes in the application of Subpart F as a result of the TCJA, global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI), the territorial dividends received deduction (DRD), and the Code Section 962 election.


The taxation of foreign source income is at the forefront of developing tax planning strategies for U.S. individual and corporate shareholders. Subpart F, GILTI, FDII, and the territorial DRD, and these rules' application to transfers of stock in foreign corporations, among other matters, require a careful analysis of the rules affecting the structure of offshore activities and the U.S. reporting of foreign source income.

Subpart F imposes an immediate tax on certain U.S. shareholders of a controlled foreign corporation (CFC) when and as the CFC realizes certain income. GILTI is an expansion of U.S. tax jurisdiction beyond the boundaries of Subpart F. It increases the amount of CFC income currently taxable to the U.S. shareholders in circumstances where deferral was allowed under prior law. Also, changes to the attribution rules regarding U.S. ownership to be categorized as CFCs.

Income taxed under local law at a rate higher than 18.9 percent (based on the current U.S. corporate tax rate) can be excluded from GILTI under final regulations when a proper election is made. U.S. corporations that are shareholders of CFCs are eligible to claim a deduction that reduces the effective tax on GILTI income by 50 percent to 10.5 percent. While individuals cannot claim the deduction, an election under Code Section 962 may reduce the current tax payment on profits retained offshore.

Listen as our panel provides guidance on the tax rules impacting U.S. shareholders of stocks in foreign corporations, the impact of Subpart F, obtaining the DRD, transfers of interests in foreign entities, and reporting compliance.
