Pre-Immigration Tax Planning

business law san diego

Many people immigrate to the United States or buy investment properties on U.S. soil without understanding the tax consequences involved. What these people do not know is that non-U.S. citizens are often treated differently for U.S. income tax and estate tax purposes.

There are certain lawful techniques that can be put in place prior to investing in assets in the U.S., which could save you and your estate a lot of money in taxes. There are also certain reporting requirements you will need to be aware of to avoid severe penalties.

If you are contemplating investing in the United States or moving here and you have questions or need additional information please contact Hanscom Alexeev & McDaniel LLP at (619) 819-5085 or send an e-mail to info@hanalexmcd.com


A will is a powerful tool. It allows an individual to state how they want their assets distributed upon their death and to whom they should go to. Dying without a will, also known as "dying intestate" does not allow you the right to choose who inherits your estate, but rather gives the State the power to decide.
