Make sure your dual resident clients are aware of potential tax issues when it comes to transfers of appreciated property to foreign entities.
A foreign corporation is a PFIC if 75% or more of its gross income is passive income or at least 50% of the average value of its assets are of a type that produce passive income. Common examples of PFICs are foreign mutual funds and shares in foreign holding companies that hold stocks and bonds. Passive income means foreign personal holding company income which includes interest, dividends, rents, royalties and annuities, among other sources of income. This white paper reviews why dual residents need to be aware of taxation of PFICs and potential CFC overlap concerns and discusses how transfers of appreciated property to a foreign entity by a U.S. person may result in adverse income tax consequences to a dual status client; thus, such transfers should be carefully evaluated.
