Treaty-Based Corporate International Tax Planning

Results-Driven Counsel Courtesy of Our International Tax Lawyers

The large and growing U.S. tax treaty network makes it likely that your company is entitled to benefits under one or more of the 50-plus U.S. tax treaties. Understanding and working with these treaties requires experience because, notwithstanding efforts to conform to a model, U.S. treaties differ from each other in important, often subtle, respects. Even seemingly simple questions common to all treaties, such as who is entitled to treaty benefits, can give rise to contentious and potentially costly disagreements with the IRS. In fact, some tax treaties do not limit who is entitled to its benefits, which further facilitates planning.
