This course will provide tax advisers and compliance professionals with a practical guide to the impact of the 2017 tax reform on U.S taxpayers with foreign income and tax reporting obligations. The panel will examine the significant changes the law imposes on calculating and reporting taxable foreign-source income and will discuss the latest regulatory guidance issued by the Service.


The tax consequences of an individual U.S. person holding foreign assets have changed substantially. Recent tax reform and updated regulations contain numerous provisions that have had a dramatic impact on U.S. individuals engaged in international business activities.

New attribution rules have created more CFCs, while the ability to defer foreign earnings has been severely diminished. The GILTI regime subjects certain income to tax at ordinary rates while individuals remain subject to Subpart F rules. Recent regulations issued to clarify areas of uncertainty have created new questions and planning opportunities.

These opportunities include holding structure choices, making the Section 962 election, and taking advantage of treaty provisions and tax credits. Tax advisers serving individual and small business clients with foreign-source income must avoid costly tax consequences by becoming proficient in the latest concepts.

Listen as our experienced panel provides a critical look at the cross-border implications of the latest tax reforms, including steps to take to minimize an individual taxpayer's effective global tax rate.
