Tax attorneys help EB-5 investors navigate the world of United States tax law. They can offer advice on complex tax regulations and help clients pay the required tax for income, profits, and property.
For EB-5 investors, attorneys can help with pre-immigration tax planning procedures and how to best plan international moves and global income. Attorneys are familiar with the U.S. taxation rules, such as the requirement to report worldwide income as well as individual state income regulations.
Tax attorneys can also help set up commonly used structures such as trusts and legal entities to protect investors’ privacy. Attorneys will also assist in creating corporations, limited partnerships, and LLCs. Though no special certification is required to become a tax attorney, some attorneys will have obtained a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in taxation.
Important to note are the differences between tax attorneys, who have expertise on the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code and provide advice on complex legal issues, and two other types of American tax experts: certified public accountants (CPAs), who, after passing comprehensive exams can conduct accounting, tax and financial consulting tasks for businesses; and enrolled agents, who are certified by the IRS to represent taxpayers before the IRS for audits, collections and appeals.
