Introduction to the taxation of foreign investment in US real estate

Impact of taxes on real estate

Real estate is very much a tax-driven industry. As a result, US tax policy has an impact on the relative attractiveness of real estate as an investment class for non-US investors. US tax rates on capital gains, the taxation of the disposition of real estate (including FIRPTA provisions) and US tax reporting requirements are often cited as examples of policies that may create obstacles to investment. It is important that investors have an understanding of the tax rules and potential planning opportunities available in order to effectively develop a US real estate investment strategy.
