U.S.-Israeli Tax and Estate Planning for Dual Citizens
Reconciling U.S. and Israeli Law on Trust Taxation, Inheritance Laws, and Wealth Transfers
Recording of a 90-minute CLE/CPE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE/CPE course will provide estate planners and tax advisers with a helpful guide to estate planning tax challenges and opportunities for clients who have a tax presence in both the United States and Israel. The panel will discuss the U.S. tax law and treaty provisions governing tax rules in Israel and the United States. The webinar will focus on the Israeli tax treatment of trusts with U.S. persons as settlers and Israeli residents as beneficiaries.
- Estate planning and probate for the global family involving the U.S. and Israel
- Israeli income tax treatment of foreign trusts
- U.S.-Israel income tax treaties
- U.S. disclosure requirements
- Structuring and planning before emigration to Israel
The panel will review these and other notable issues:
- What are the considerations required to reduce the overall cost of inheritance, including relevant taxation, when there are U.S. and Israeli nexuses?
- What is the tax treatment for foreign-settled trusts with Israeli beneficiaries?
- Where are the "gap" areas in the U.S.-Israel tax treaty where income may be subject to dual taxation, and how may planners structure trust vehicles that minimize the impact?
