Where does the liability fall?

The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act, better known as FIRPTA, provides that a buyer must withhold 15% of the amount realized by the foreign seller in the sale of an interest in U.S. real property. If the seller is a foreign person and the buyer fails to withhold, the buyer may be held liable for the tax. This class will address who is liable for the FIRPTA tax, the Seller's Disclosure, the Florida Bar/Florida REALTOR Contract, what happens on a short sale, withholding escrow agreements and the definition of U.S. Citizenship.

This course will cover:
  • Who is liable for the FIRPTA tax
  • Definition of a U.S. Citizen
  • How FIRPTA is addressed in a Seller's Disclosure and the FL Bar contract and the rider
  • FIRPTA withholding certificates
  • What is a Statement of Intent to Reside
