We are filing Married Filing Separately, listing her husband's name and Social Security #. Her husband also has a Green Card. Her husbandworks in Italy and files a tax return in Italy as a resident.

According to FATCA, a 30% withholding is possible for certain

According to FATCA, a 30% withholding is possible for certain kinds of payments if FATCA rules are not observed. Doesn't this come into conflict with International Tax Treaties regarding FDAP income that allows lower percentages of withholding or even zero withholding?

I am working with a consultant from Australia and Im curious

I am working with a consultant from Australia and I'm curious if there are any special tax implications that I need to be aware of. I know that there is an international tax treaty between the US and Australia, so I'm assuming that I do not need to withhold any taxes and that at the end of the year I would issue a 1099MISC to this individual, as I would for all my other consultants. A colleague of mine mentioned that I may need to withhold 30% of the consultant's fees for taxes, but this doesn't seem accurate to me, which is why I'm asking the question :) My colleague also mentioned that I needed the consultant to complete a form W8BEN in order to not have to withhold the 30% for tax purposes. Please contact me if you need additional information in order to answer this question.

Looking for favorable taxation choice: Have a small U.S. LLC (delaware) (owner's are U.S. citizen/residents) about to do a joint venture with a Mexican Company. Sales will be worldwide. Considering forming a new entity for the joint venture. What is a good country to situate this new entity? Or should the U.S. company actually just move to such new country altogether and just split profits with mexican company via joint venture contract?

I will stop working later this year and my partner will

Hello, I will stop working later this year and my partner will continue working. His salary will pay for our living expenses. Can he claim me as a dependent? If he does, do we have to file taxes jointly? I ask because I'm on the income based repayment plan for student loans, and I need to keep filing separately to lower the monthly payments.

Taxpayer changed her job and went to another firm to work.

Taxpayer changed her job and went to another firm to work. She had a 4019(k) from the previous employer. She rolled over her 401(k) from her previous employer to another brokerage firm. But the brokerage firm sent her about 3300.00 contribution to her 401(k) which she contributed with her AFTER TAX money. 3300.00 does not have any interest or dividend.All of this is her after tax contribution. Is this amount taxable by IRS? Brokerage company said that the amount is not taxable.1099-R indicates code 1. Is this amount taxable? If it is not taxable how does the taxpayer report on her tax return?
