Rethinking Entity Choice In Light of Tax Cuts And Jobs Act

Until the inception of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, entity selection by businesses was a fairly easy decision.  In most cases, businesses chose a form of pass-through entity, given the high tax rate of thirty-five percent given to C corporations in the past.  With the new changes brought forth in TCJA, and the lower tax rate of twenty-one percent, change is in the air.  But what are the benefits of considering C corporation status?  Unless you are a very large company, determining if you should change from a pass-through structure to a C corporation will not be an easy one.  Read more

International FAQ #29 – Foreign Accrual Property Income

Grant Gilmour

What is Foreign Accrual Property Income (FAPI) and what affect does it have on my corporate taxes?

If you are a Canadian resident and own a foreign corporation that earns passive income, the income needs to be reported on your Canadian tax return even if you never received the funds. However, if the foreign corporation has a loss, the loss is not allowed to offset any other income you have for the year. Instead, the loss can be carried back three years against previous FAPI or forward 20 years against future FAPI.

U.S. Taxation of Entities, Associations, and Partnerships: What’s Your “Situs” Roger?

In the U.S. tax system, there is no characteristic of associations or entities (partnerships, corporations, and trusts) that corresponds exactly to the “nationality” or “residence” of individuals. For most organizations, however, there is a place – or at least a distinct legal environment – that establishes their existence and identity. This place, sometimes referred to as an entity’s “situs”, bears heavily on its taxation.

Corporations

The situs of a corporation is inextricably tied to the country of its incorporation. To that end, two simple words define the tax treatment of a corporation: “domestic” and “foreign.” A “domestic” entity (including a partnership or a corporation) is one “organized in the United States under the laws of the United States or of any State.” § 7701(a)(4).
