Who needs an ITIN? The IRS issues ITIN's to foreign persons who have federal tax reporting or filing requirements and do not qualify for a SSN. If you do not have a SSN and are not eligible for a SSN, you must apply for an ITIN. We are Certified Acceptance Agents and are uniquely qualified to assist you in applying for an ITIN.
FIRPTA stands for "Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act" and it was enacted in 1980. This tax law states that when a foreign investor sells a property, the buyer must deduct 15% of the sale price from the foreign seller. The law states that at closing, the 15% must be sent to the IRS within 20 days, unless certain information is sent to the IRS prior to the date of closing (Form 8288-B, Application for a Withholding Certificate). If this is done, then the title company can hold the 15% in an escrow account until the IRS has made a decision regarding capital gains and issues a withholding certificate.
