Client/Legal Alert
A rather obscure law change last year now imposes a non-tax filing obligation on US persons with interests outside of the US This is particularly relevant for US trusts with offshore entities, even if the trust is not a US trust for tax purposes. As this is not a tax form, a “check-the-box” to disregard does not change this obligation. For individuals in the US Voluntary Disclosure program, an election to “sham out” an entity does not cause the form to be inapplicable. The bottom line is that a vehicle formed under US law, be it a trust, corporation, partnership or LLC, is subject to these rules, irrespective of its US tax classification. US persons owning such structures are subject to reporting requirements, even if the vehicle is transparent for US tax purposes.
