I am a USA & UK citizen; I want to sell my principal residence
I am a USA & UK citizen; I want to sell my principal residence in London but the USA and CA will insist on capital gains on the entire sales price since i no longer qualify for 121 bill $500,000 tax relief. ( I have rented my home out for over 3 years). Since the tax will mean I have no money to live on when i retire my only remaining option seems to be expatriation on an agreed date.What are the terms of expatriation re my future ability to visit or live in the USA? How long does the repatriation process take? How much does it cost? I will not have any exit tax to pay as I have no assets in the usa.

Im a non American married for
I have questions on taxes.I'm a non American married for 40 years to an American. I want to get my green card soon as my family business is closing back home. However my major asset is my share of the building that the company we in, and until we can sell the building, I don't have that as a liquid asset. Is there a legal way that I can go ahead and apply for my green card, and whenever the property is sold, (in this economy that could be years,) not have to pay U.S. taxes on my share? (I already will have to pay taxes on the sale to my government back home.)I do have an option of going back to school (I studied in the U.S. and quit college to get married, one year short of my BA degree.) I could apply for a student visa and finish my education, which I want to do regardless of my immigration status in the future.
Dears, Im an alien (non USA) resident with property in USA
Dears, I'm an alien (non USA) resident with property in USA (Chicago, Ilinois) which I have just purchased. Property will be rented through management company (Chicago IL) and will generate income. Funds will go on trustee account with management company. I'm wondering if it would be better to establish LLC to limit personal liability and for tax purposes. Another question is whether to establish LLC in Ilinois where the property is or in any other state like Wyoming, Delaware where taxes on income are lower -I suppose? Thank you, Matt

A French national has held a US green card for more than a dozen years which he has used exclusively to facilitate short visits from France to the U. S. for vacations. Under the tie-breraker rules of the U.S. income tax treaty with France, he would certainly be considered a resident of France. Under the green-card rules, he would be considered a U. S. resident for income tax purposes. Which rule would prevail?
