Our International Tax Services
International Tax Structuring
We team up with foreign attorneys and accountants to come up with the best possible structure considering tax issues in both countries.
Mexico/U.S. Cross-Border Tax
We represent many Mexican families doing business in the U.S., many which include family members that are dual citizens of the U.S. and Mexico, that are obligated to fully comply with tax obligations that apply to residents of both countries.
Now that there is certainty as to the preferential taxation of qualified dividends, IC-DISC continues to be a great incentive for U.S. companies with significant export activity.
Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC)
A foreign corporation will fall under the Passive Foreign Investment Company rules if it meets either the Income test or the Asset Test. Due to these definitions, almost every foreign mutual fund will meet these requirements and will fall under the Passive Foreign Investment Company regime. When opening foreign securities accounts, it's important to know what type of investments will be made and whether they may be considered PFICs.
Foreign Bank Account Reporting (FBAR)
This is an area that can be fairly complex if U.S. taxpayers have financial accounts in foreign countries that are not the typical bank accounts. These requirements also extend to majority owners of U.S. entities that have signature authority or ownership of foreign accounts.
Foreign Interest in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA)
We have extensive knowledge in navigating the requirements FIRPTA. Our international tax team has helped foreign investors with countless transactions subject to FIRPTA for sales of real estate both in New Mexico and nationally.

We assist U.S. citizens that have not been in full compliance with reporting offshore activity and have experience in getting them through the VDI program.
