Whether you are Selling, Buying, or even Renting something you own in the United States, it is important to have a strong understanding of how the US Government may treat our many Clients from all over the world, and in which situations they should expect these laws to apply to them - whether dealing with Residential or Commercial Real Estate transactions.
Here's some basic information worth mentioning before you start any Real Estate transaction. Whatever the situation may be, our Agents are well trained and knowledgeable about the basic principles when working with a Non-US Citizen or Resident - and they will connect you with the right Tax or Legal Professional when the time comes.
If you are buying a property in the United States, the process is simple and straightforward. We will explain the entire process, help you find the right property, negotiate the best deal, and walk you all the way to final sale day. But when you are ready to sell it, there is a bit more to prepare for.
If you are not a US Citizen or Green Card Holder (Permanent Resident) - When you sell your house, we will need to pay close attention to the details of US tax rules. It isn't that complicated, but we just want to ensure that you receive the best return on your investment.
Which is why your RealtyLogic Agent will be happy to connect you to a qualified Professional (Accountant or Attorney) who is experienced in cross-border and international Tax Law.
While both United States Citizens and Permanent Resident Aliens (Green Card Holders) may pay taxes on income earned from a Rental Property, the same will also apply to International Clients (who are not US-Residents). Again, that is why our Team will connect you with the right qualified Tax Professional.
