With the onset of the pandemic, we are seeing significant cross-border taxation implications emerge, particularly relevant to residency determinations for United States and foreign individuals and businesses. Travel restrictions and “shelter in place” orders have caused the displacement of individuals and employees, inadvertently creating tax residents and permanent establishments in the United States, along with other foreign taxing jurisdictions. The change in employee’s locations has also forced businesses to revisit income sourcing determination.

Recently issued IRS regulations have clarified and modified international tax changes that were originally enacted as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”). Finally, the IRS continues to make offshore compliance of foreign accounts, assets, pensions and income a key enforcement priority and has issued a campaign to audit taxpayers that previously filed Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program submissions.

In this presentation, Scott Ahroni will discuss the recent international tax changes that CPAs should be aware of to ensure that their clients have properly reported their cross-border activities. Mr. Ahroni will also advise what an audit will look like in the current environment and the relief provisions available for eligible taxpayers looking to come into compliance with their foreign reporting obligations.


Estate planners are increasingly working with expatriates and foreigners regarding their estate and tax planning for their U.S. owned businesses and investments. This seminar will discuss the specific issues of inbound and outbound estate and gift tax planning, as well as, the compliance obligations of imposed on both clients and practitioners engaging in foreign estate plans. Finally, this seminar will discuss the IRS recent audit campaigns targeting foreign investment in the U.S. and what relief provisions are available if you or your client need to come into compliance with information reporting obligations.
