We are excited to celebrate the one year anniversary of the launch of our International Tax Blog! Since January 9, 2017, we published more than 40 original blog posts covering a variety of international tax topics. We examined issues affecting individuals, such as owning property in a foreign country, as well as considerations for businesses, such as the withholding requirements for payments to nonresident aliens and foreign entities.

In addition, partner Linda Bruckner contributed two articles to the NYSSCPA Tax Stringer (“Tax Implications of Purchasing Real Estate from a Foreign Person—What You Need to Know” and “U.S. Tax Implications of Working Overseas—What You Need to Know“) as well as an article in the Central New York Business Journal (“Why Should Your Business Care About International Tax Issues?“). We also provided alerts about regulatory changes involving international tax issues. In 2017, our most popular blog was our post about Form 5472—Information Return of a 25% Foreign-Owned U.S. Corporation or a Foreign Corporation Engaged in a U.S. Trade of Business. We are glad you found it helpful!

We hope you enjoyed reading our blogs in 2017. This year, we will be exploring such topics as foreign payroll, passive foreign investment companies (PFICs), and the international tax implications of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Stay tuned, and as always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
