Many non-resident alien individuals from around the world hope to invest and reside in the United States. The U.S., which is one of the few countries that taxes its citizens and residents based upon their worldwide income, also taxes non-resident aliens on income derived from within the U.S., including income from a U.S. trade or business and income from certain investments in U.S. property. Very often, immigrating residents are unfamiliar with the country’s tax laws, including what they will face upon obtaining their resident status. This lack of knowledge often leads immigrants to pay unnecessary taxes and exposes them to greater liabilities.
