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.
