DENNIS PEREZ, MICHEL STEIN and ROBERT HORWITZ to Speak at Upcoming Strafford Webinar

We are pleased to announce that Dennis Perez, Michel Stein and Robert Horwitz will be speaking at the upcoming Strafford webinar, “Federal and State Tax Residency Issues: Navigating IRS Examination Guidance, State Regulations, Remote Workers” on Thursday, May 12, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (PST).

This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax professionals guidance on key federal and state tax residency rules and planning considerations for taxpayers. The panel will discuss the importance of both citizenship and residence in determining tax liabilities of individuals, challenges for remote workers, the applicability of income tax treaties, allocating income between jurisdictions, dual-residency issues, principal items targeted by regulatory authorities, and other key items.

Advising taxpayers on issues relating to residency has become even more cumbersome with increased IRS examinations focused on taxpayer residency and the application of U.S. income tax treaties. Tax professionals must navigate various federal and state tax residency rules, IRS examination guidance, and state regulations in the post-COVID-19 world to implement effective tax planning strategies for taxpayers.

Federal tax residency rules applicable to individuals or businesses are relatively straightforward but can be burdensome to evaluate depending on the facts and circumstances. Tax treaties seek to eliminate or reduce double income taxation, and benefits are available to nonresident aliens and U.S. citizens living abroad under some conditions. Due to the critical nature of residency for tax purposes, taxpayers must understand residency rules and applicable tax treaties that will determine if they are subject to taxation, the necessary forms to file, and if they qualify for any exemptions.

Also, state regulatory challenges to taxpayer residency and overcoming them is an obstacle faced by many individuals with dual-residency between states or by companies operating in multiple jurisdictions. State residency determination is based on more than declarations or physical presence in the state, and the burden of proof falls on the taxpayer in such cases. This fact is typically learned the hard way by taxpayers, resulting in the endangering of assets and being subject to tax liability that could have been limited or avoided with careful planning.

Listen as our panel discusses key components of federal and state residency rules, determining tax liabilities of individuals and businesses, challenges for remote workers, the applicability of income tax treaties, allocating income between jurisdictions, dual-residency issues, and principal items targeted by regulatory authorities.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be able to offer a limited number of complimentary and reduced cost tickets for this program on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in attending, please contact Sharon Tanaka at sht@taxlitigator.com.
