International Tax


Parker Poe attorneys have extensive international tax planning experience. Our tax attorneys regularly advise non-U.S. residents on the U.S. tax implications of conducting business and investing in the U.S. We assist clients with choice of entity and site selection decisions and in obtaining tax incentives from state and local governments. We also assist U.S. residents with outbound tax planning, including the implementation of strategic tax-deferral strategies. We regularly represent clients in cross-border M&A transactions and in the restructuring of multinational corporations. We also have extensive experience drafting and negotiating joint venture agreements involving foreign investors.

In addition to our tax planning and transactional work, Parker Poe represents foreign corporations and nonresident individuals in disputes before the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities. Our international tax compliance team frequently assists clients with informational reporting and withholding issues and helps clients come into compliance with U.S. tax law through voluntary disclosures to the IRS.
