CLE: Taxing Questions for Foreign Nationals: Tax Law Basics Every Immigration Attorney Should Know


Immigration clients may incur tax consequences in multiple countries each time they change status or residency. Failure to comply with tax laws can have serious consequences for compliance and have unintended adverse consequences regarding their future immigration applications. As immigration attorneys, it is important to understand the fundamentals of tax law (including the physical presence/tax residency tests) in order to flag these various issues for clients, make appropriate referrals, and help clients understand their need to properly comply with all applicable tax laws. Moderator Matthew Webster and presenter Ken Levinson, both attorneys at Fredrikson & Byron, will cover tax law basics, how changes in immigration status affect taxes, and the critical nature of tax compliance for immigration applications such as Adjustment of Status, TN petitions, I-130 petitions, E-2 petitions, and more. Bring your lunch to this in-person CLE or attend remotely via Zoom.
