EB-5 Immigrant Investor Tax Considerations

The United States charges income tax on all U.S. citizens and permanent residents based on worldwide income.

  • Each U.S. State has its own tax system.
  • Treaties and various exemptions eliminate some but not all risk of double taxation.

Investors should consider the tax effects of becoming a U.S. resident before investing.

  • As a general rule, if you are moving all of your assets to the U.S. you will not have a problem with double taxation.
  • If you will continue working or investing in your home country after moving to the U.S., a professional tax advisor with International experience is required.

ICC’s international agency network spans 4 continents – Asia, Latin American, Europe (including the Middle East) and Africa.
