For the second consecutive year, Shutts & Bowen Miami Partner Logan Gans was a featured speaker at the International Tax Conference’s (ITC) 39th Annual International Tax Boot Camp. This year, the conference was held virtually on January 13, 2021.
Logan discussed topics related to inbound taxation, including U.S. trade or business analysis, the structuring of U.S. investments, and the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (“FIRPTA”). Logan is also a member of the FICPA International Tax Committee that annually plans the International Tax Conference & Boot Camp.
The ITC Boot Camp was created to help tax professionals master need-to-know skills and trends in the international tax realm and is designed to prepare its attendees with a foundational understanding of international tax. This year’s conference focused on inbound and outbound international tax issues as well as the mechanics of the IRS’s Form 5471, which is an information return for certain U.S. taxpayers with an interest in certain foreign corporations.
