One of the webinars, FATCA Compliance – The Streamline Program and the Offshore Voluntary Compliance Program for Americans with Offshore Bank Accounts, focuses on the Congressional requirement for U.S. taxpayers to report their accounts in foreign financial institutions. Only recently the U.S. Treasury became aware of just how many foreign bank accounts were not reported both innocently and intentionally. The webinar gives an overview of new laws to ensure compliance and details two new programs, known as the Offshore Voluntary Compliance Program and the Streamline Program, that permit U.S. taxpayers who had not reported their foreign accounts to become compliant with their reporting obligations.

A second webinar focuses on Tax Refunds from Ponzi Scheme Clawbacks and Ponzi Scheme Theft Losses. In today’s world, financial scams can be found in many forms. One of the most typical financial schemes is the Ponzi scheme - financial fraud in which funds are collected by a perpetrator who does not invest the funds but pays them out as false profits to lure in more investors. Investors eventually suffer financial harm from lost funds and many who profited from the fraud are forced to repay their profits. In both cases, tax refunds may be available and can be maximized for the loss or repayment of Ponzi scheme funds.

The Taxation Planning for the Foreign Investor in United States Real Estate webinar focuses the unique way foreign investors are taxed on their U.S real estate holdings. Foreign investors invest billions of dollars in U.S. real estate each year, and the U.S offers a multiplicity of investment opportunities in real estate benefits from rental income or the increasing values in real estate holding. The webinar details the advantages and ways foreign investors may pay minimal taxes on investment in U.S real estate while also discussing the tax traps that can cost investors very high taxes on their real estate income. 

Another webinar, Tax Planning for Foreign Investors in United States Business and Personal Affairs, details the unique set of tax laws governing foreign investors and how to reduce their U.S. taxes and avoid being subject to the U.S. on their worldwide income. The fifth webinar, Pre-Immigration Tax Planning for Nonresident Aliens Immigrating to the United States, provides an overview for how those coming to the U.S who have significant wealth and income streams accumulated before becoming U.S. taxpayers. They need to know how to enter the country and not pay U.S. taxes on the wealth and income that they have already accumulated and on certain types of income that they have previously earned.  They also need to plan to minimize U.S. taxes when they finally become U.S. taxpayers.

All of the webinars are complimentary and can be found on Lehman’s tax law seminar website. To access the presentations, visit
