      Lawyers, investment bankers, fund managers and others who represent foreign investors in U.S. real estate must plan for the tax consequences under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) and deal with the new audit regime that the IRS has unfurled in recent years. That’s why Wagner, Duys & Wood has written a comprehensive guide. Tax planning for the foreign investor acquiring real estate with cash investments in the range of approximately $1,, or more requires a look at both the U.S. income tax consequences and the U.S. estate and gift tax consequences.
