Why foreign nationals are seeking help from American advisers - Foreign National Market

Immigration status is very important in the foreign national market.

The resident alien market is defined as non U.S. citizens who live in the U.S. The prospects in the foreign market have a poultry $60,000 estate exemption with no unlimited marital deduction. Qualified Domestic Trust (QDOT) planning can help mitigate some of the tax issues with foreign nationals. Interestingly enough, all worldwide assets are subject to estate taxation.

Often advisors are unaware that a solution is available, or fear they will not be able to offer a solution when the client is a non-US citizen. Once the status of a resident alien is established, the rules of engagement for that particular people group can be applied.
