Monday’s Tax Planning Seminar For CFCs In Philadelphia



Kat Jennings

September 19 is just on the other side of the weekend. There’s not much time left to sign up for this Tax Planning Seminar.

Networking Seminars one day technical update on Tax Planning for CFCs under Subpart F Income. One of the purposes of Subpart F is to prevent CFCs from structuring transactions in a way that are designed to manipulate the inconsistencies between foreign and U.S. tax systems to inappropriately generate low or non-taxed income on which U.S. tax may be permanently deferred.

Subpart F income is one of the important issues to be aware of when completing Form 5471, but it is also very difficult to determine. According to I.R.C. Section 952, there are several categories of subpart F income. Attend this seminar to learn about CFCs and the subpart f categories and about several exceptions to the categories of subpart F income to reduce taxes.

These international tax planning seminars are for law firm and accounting firm professionals who advise clients on structuring cross border transactions and on international tax planning matters; in-house tax professionals involved in cross-border and internal planning, in IRS audits and appeals of international issues and tax compliance activities. There is no advance preparation or prerequisites for this group live seminar. (Field of Study: Taxes)
