White Paper

The IRS and Offshore Tax Evasion - U.S. Foreign Grantor Trusts: Foreign Trusts with U.S. Beneficiaries (Outbound Trusts) - IRC Sec. 679

 
“If a U.S. person transfers property to a foreign trust that has one or more U.S. beneficiaries, IRC Sec. 679 treats the transferor as owner of the portion of the trust attributable to the property transferred (IRC Sec. 679(a)(1)).

There are exceptions:
1. A transfer by reason of the death of the transferor (IRC Sec. 679 (a)(2)(A));
2. A transfer “in exchange for consideration of at least the fair market value of the transferred property” (IRC Sec. 679(a)(2)(B).

If a foreign trust accumulates income during a year in which it has no U.S. beneficiary, if the trust acquires a U.S. beneficiary in a later year, a U.S. transferor (who would have been treated as owner of a portion of the trust during the prior year, but for the fact that it had no U.S. beneficiary) is taxable in the first year IRC Sec. 679 applies, on additional income equal to the trust’s undistributed net income for all prior taxable years (to the extent such undistributed net income remains in the trust at the end of the taxable year immediately prior to applicability of IRC Sec. 679) attributable to the portion to which IRC Sec. 679 applies (IRC Sec. 679(b).”
