Pre-Immigration Tax Planning Individuals

Pre-Immigration Tax Planning Services

Castro & Co. Can Assist You with Taxation Matters When You Arrive in the U.S.

After you obtain your visa to live or work in the United States, your worldwide income becomes subject to U.S. taxation. Not knowing what you really owe in taxes can not only cause you to end up paying more than necessary, but puts you at risk of serious penalties for underpaying your taxes or failing to report foreign income.

Common “tax traps” in the U.S. that affect new immigrants include:

  • The gains of your foreign assets are subject to U.S. taxation
  • No tax credits for foreign taxes paid by your company abroad
  • Preferred qualified dividend tax treatment will not apply to investments in non-treaty countries
  • Incurring a U.S. exit tax liability when you surrender your green card or leave the U.S. without becoming a citizen

If you think you need help with these or another pre-immigration tax planning matter, contact the attorneys of Castro & Co. online or call (833) 227-8761 for support.
