Schneidman to Speak at 72nd Institute on Federal Taxation

The Institute on Federal Taxation is organized by New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies and held every year on each coast. It addresses all major areas of taxation and attracts attorneys, both general tax practitioners and specialists; accountants; corporate treasury and compliance executives; tax managers; and financial planners seeking expert discussion of the latest technical, legislative, and planning developments.

Len will co-present U.S. Tax Law Implications for Foreign Partners. The session addresses the tax treatment of U.S. activities of foreign partners. Foreign partners can be subjected to U.S. tax by, for example, being members of a partnership (foreign or domestic) that invests or engages in a business in the United States. In addition, partnerships investing in U.S. real property raise specific issues under the Foreign investment in Real Property Tax Act, and special categories of foreign partners (e.g. sovereign wealth funds) may trigger the application of special tax rules. Partnerships also raise particular transfer tax issues for nonresident alien individuals.

Len Schneidman has over 40 years of experience in international taxation. His work includes counseling clients on structuring and operation of private investment funds, advising high net worth foreign investors on U.S. investments and activities, and helping U.S. and non-U.S. corporate clients with tax-efficient structuring of their business operations.
