The United States will permit nonresident alien taxpayers, both individual and foreign corporations to defer any taxes on gain from the sale of United States real estate. These taxes may be deferred and paid at a later point in the event a foreign investor continues the real estate investment; by reinvesting their profits in other U.S. real estate ventures. Taxes on such a transaction will not be collected until the real estate property is sold for cash.
