U.S. Tax Residency, COVID-19 and Beyond - 24th June 2020
**Speakers from the government have been invited to attend**
Foreign individuals have always had to closely monitor application of the U.S. tax residency rules as the consequences of being a resident alien, including taxation of income from all sources worldwide, as well as extensive reporting requirements, are so onerous.
The coronavirus pandemic has added ever more nuanced factors to such an analysis, due to travel disruptions or even impossibility, quarantines, border closures and infection risk. These challenges have affected the application of tax residence rules around the world.
In addition, workers trapped in the United States have been working remotely, and thus unexpectedly subjected their earnings to tax and possibly exposed their employers to tax liability as well. The U.S. government has offered some limited relief, which requires careful navigation.
The speakers will review relevant U.S. tax rules in light of the pandemic and the limited U.S. response to date. They will also offer some practical ideas on how to plan around these issues, both during the crisis and more generally.
