If your client is a non-resident alien thinking about becoming a U.S. Resident, you need to consider Pre-Immigration Tax Planning to:

  1. Minimize your client’s U.S. Income Tax on Worldwide Income;
  2. Reduce your client’s exposure to U.S. Estate Taxes on Global Holdings; and
  3. Protect your client’s assets.
Otherwise, your client may find him/herself in the unfortunate position of paying U.S. income taxes on worldwide income and possibly subjecting their entire global estate to U.S. taxation without the benefits, exemptions and exclusions available to U.S. citizens. This course provides you with the tools to help your client plan ahead, reduce their tax exposure and protect their assets from creditors.
