On January 22, Davis Malm shareholders Amy Fracassini, Brian Gaudet, and Donna White conducted a webinar, “Passport to Trusts & Estates: U.S. Issues for Canadian Estates,” which addressed tax and estate planning issues facing wealth and estate professionals in Canada. The presentation focused on transactional issues associated with purchasing property in the U.S.; transfer taxes applicable to non-citizens who are not domiciled in the U.S.; trust ownership issues of U.S. real estate; real estate tax obligations, particularly in rental and sale situations; and legal and tax issues in administering U.S. assets.

The program was hosted by the International Lawyers Network, and the Canadian law firms of Clark Wilson LLP in Vancouver and Fogler, Rubinoff LLP in Toronto also participated in the webinar.
