Foreign Inheritance - the Pandora's Box of U.S. International Tax Reporting Requirements

Event Description

Deadline to Register: January 15, 2019

This program is co-sponsored by the International Business Law Section and the Probate and Trust Law Section.

Lunch will be provided. Registration will begin at 11:30 am.  The program will begin at noon.

This CLE presents a unique opportunity to learn directly from an experienced international tax attorney about U.S. international tax reporting requirements concerning foreign inheritance  - a topic of foremost significance to a U.S. taxpayer who has a foreign-born spouse, foreign parents and/or any other foreign relatives.  Moreover, it is very important for lawyers who work with such taxpayers (particularly, business, estate planning, immigration and trust lawyers) to be able to timely identify and alert their clients about their potential U.S. tax compliance obligations related to a foreign inheritance.

During the seminar, the speaker will define the concept of foreign inheritance, analyze its timing issues, explain the most important U.S. tax reporting requirements concerning foreign inheritance and identify the common tax traps that may lead to a penalty assessment by the IRS.  The CLE will also broadly cover the main U.S. tax compliance requirements concerning a foreign business inheritance and an acquisition of a beneficiary interest in a foreign trust.


Eugene Sherayzen , Esq., is the founder and owner of Sherayzen Law Office, Ltd. ( - a law firm that specializes in U.S. tax compliance for US tax residents and foreign persons.
