The EB-5 Visa Program allows certain foreign nationals to obtain a United States Green Card in the U.S. if they meet certain criteria, including investment in a U.S. business and creating jobs for U.S. workers. This avenue can be a great option for foreign nationals who have the money to invest, but there are many complexities of the process including transferring money across international borders, tax planning issues, securities compliance, and meeting the immigration requirements. In particular, from a tax perspective, successful EB-5 Visa applicants become U.S. tax residents who are taxed on their worldwide income and they should plan appropriately from the inception of the EB-5 process to avoid unexpected tax pitfalls.
Our panel has amassed extensive experience advising clients to successfully navigate the array of legal issues that arise in relation to the EB-5 program. This program will provide attorneys with a thorough understanding of these legal issues as well as a foundation of strategies to put into action.
