Pre-COVID, nearly two-thirds of Florida residents were found to have migrated to Florida from other states and one-fifth of those migrated from a foreign country.  COVID changed the way we live and work.  Remote work arrangements have made it unnecessary to be tied to a physical location.  Since COVID, over 900 people move to Florida each day.  People move to Florida for many reasons: the weather is beautiful, they want to move closer to family and friends, they are attracted to the business-friendly environment, etc.  Tax isn’t always a first priority; however, it is a significant factor.  Many strategies may be implemented to mitigate U.S. income and estate taxes before becoming a Florida resident and even after arrival.  We invite you to attend our presentation covering the following international tax-related topics:

·         U.S. Income Tax Residency
·         Income Tax and Reporting Requirements for U.S. Residents
·         Strategies for Remediating Potential Noncompliance
·         U.S. Domiciliary Status for Estate Tax Purposes
·         Estate Tax and Reporting Requirements for U.S. and Non-U.S. Domiciliaries
·         Structuring Strategies to Mitigate Income and Estate Tax
