Almost one million foreign individuals are relocating to the United States to find a permanent home in America every year. Many of these immigrants owned substantial wealth that they have made during the course of their lifetimes, which have nothing to do with success in the United States. Care needs to be taken by these individuals in order to insure that they are not paying taxes on gains and earnings that have accrued before they became U.S. taxpayers. There are several techniques can be used to insure there is no tax in the U.S. on gains and earnings accrued before U.S. residency. This seminar will review the principals behind these techniques and the techniques themselves.
