Course Description

Even the simplest trusts can be foreign.  Since foreign trusts generate unique and potentially punitive tax consequences, it is helpful to be able to spot them and fix them.  We will review the court and control tests with a focus on the common trust provisions that are most likely to inadvertently cause a trust to be foreign.  We will briefly cover the potential tax and reporting issues with a foreign trust, then cover how to fix the problems a foreign trust can create.
