IRS Form 5471: Information Return for U.S. Persons With Respect to Certain Foreign Corporations


Be confident in your IRS Form 5471 filing skills and avoid costly audits and penalties.

Form 5471, Information Return of U.S. Persons with Respect to Certain Foreign Corporations, is an annual tax reporting obligation of U.S. shareholders owning foreign corporations to disclose information like financial position, related party transactions, earnings and profits, changes in the ownership structure of foreign corporation, Subpart F income and G.I.L.T.I. income of the U.S. shareholder. A failure to timely file Form 5471 attracts a heavy penalty which makes it imperative to understand the triggering event for such reporting obligation.
This material will help you develop a basic understanding of the process of identifying U.S. persons subject to the reporting obligation, the attribution rules to determine the U.S. filer status, the extent of reporting and differences in how attribution rules apply for reporting purposes versus other purposes of the Code such as the Subpart F provisions, including GILTI. These topics will be explained with the help of examples and relevant code sections and regulations that will assist you in the application of the regulations to specific facts to facilitate better understanding.
