This applies to anyone that has any type of assets overseas that can be associated with their name. It’s even more critical for immigrants and foreign-born individuals especially if they have deep ties to the home country. The assets can be in the form of bank accounts, old pensions or simply accounts where your name was added for convenience as well as assets gifted over time.

The following are the 4 tax issues, to watch out for that I discuss in the post

    1. Being taxed on worldwide income

    2. Having to file an FBAR

    3. Receiving gifts from overseas residents

    4. Investing in non-U.S. assets overseas.
