On June 20, shareholders Bill Griffin and Richard Hindlian presented the program, “Foreign Investments in U.S. Real Estate – Tax Law, Entity Selection and Transaction Structures,” at the Massachusetts Society of CPAs (MSCPA) Real Estate Conference. The program provided an overview of basic tax rules applicable to foreign investors, and compared how those rules apply to different ownership entities. It also discussed how real estate transactions may be structured to avoid tax traps and minimize income, estate and gift taxes.
