If a non-resident entertainer...

If a non-resident entertainer performs a concert in NYC, is he subject to UBT?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

The entertainer is a symphony conductor who is a foreign national and resides in Europe. He conducted one night in NYC. Does he have to file a UBT return for his income?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

No, that should do it.

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

As a non-resident who is not "doing business" in NYC, he would not be subject to UBT.

He has no permanent place of business (i.e., office) in NYC and is not considered to be doing business in NYC.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
