Foreigners Investing in U.S. Real Estate Service
I. U.S. Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return – Form 1040NR
If you have rental income from a U.S. property or realized a capital gain from the sale of a U.S. property, you are required to file a U.S. income tax return.
II. Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN)
In order to file your U.S. income tax return, you must have an IRS-issued tax ID number also known as an ITIN.
III. FIPRTA Withholding Certificate
In addition to our tax preparation service, we can assist you with obtaining a FIRPTA withholding certificate that can be used to reduce the U.S. withholding tax upon the sale of your U.S. real property investment. This is a separately charged service. For more information on FIRPTA withholding, please visit our Foreigners Investing in U.S. Real Estate (hyperlink) page.
