International Tax Planning Committe
Volunteer to Work On Current Projects!
The International Tax Planning Committee is currently working with the Tax Section to finalize comments to the IRS and Treasury Department on the new Exit Tax (IRC Section 877A) and the new Succession Tax (IRC Section 2801). In addition, the Committee is working with an AICPA task force to develop Form 1041NR for US taxpayers to report distributions and income from foreign trusts, and is collaborating with other AICPA task forces in order to better represent the interests of practitioners and their clients regarding offshore compliance and expatriation. Also, at the Income & Transfer Tax Hot Topics Roundtable at the Spring Symposia, the Committee will present an update regarding international estate planning and offshore investments under the new administration.
