FIRPTA – Requests for Withholding Certificate
The disposition of U.S. real property by a foreign person is subject to the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act of 1980 (FIRPTA) income tax withholding. This tax is an automatic 10% of the sale price. In many cases the actual tax due is a lot less. I can assist you in applying for a reduced tax amount without having to wait until the next year when you file your income tax return. The application process does need to occur prior to the date of sale.
