What is FIRPTA?

The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) of 1980 imposes a tax on capital gains derived by foreign persons from the dispositions of U.S. property interests. If you are a foreigner, or you are purchasing a property from a foreigner, FIRPTA might affect you. Whether you’re preparing to buy or sell a US property, it’s important to understand your obligations.
