Foreign trusts are appealing for holding and transferring wealth between generations. For U.S. taxpayers, however, they carry a heavy tax burden. We'll review situations where foreign trusts might be used: inbound transfers of wealth and outbound transfers, such as asset protection trusts. Tax considerations are the focus of this course, but practical issues will be addressed.
