Guzman ArizaTax. Although not necessarily the most fun topic, tax, and more importantly how much you have to pay, is something which is important to everyone. Which is why you are cordially invited to an upcoming event “U.S. and International Persons Living or Holding Assets in the Dominican Republic” to make sure you understand (and are complying with) the latest “Developments in U.S. and DR Tax, Estate Planning and Reporting Requirements”.

Taking place at the Casa de Campo villa of Phyllis Berney (Barranca Este #66) at 5pm on Saturday the 30th of November, the presentation and cocktail is being jointly hosted by the law firms of Cantor & Webb P.A. (United States) and Guzmán Ariza (Dominican Republic).

The presentation will deal with matters related to Estate and Tax Planning for both US and other international citizens that live or have assets or bank accounts in the Dominican Republic.

Please note that while this presentation is directed towards US citizens as well as other non-Dominican citizens, if you are Dominican you may still like to attend – especially if your children are US citizens.

The following topics will be addressed:

US only:

  • US Tax compliance work concerning FBARs (Foreign Banks and Financial Accounts) and voluntary disclosure filings.
  • What US citizens need to know about the FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) and how it affects them as investors abroad (in the Dominican Republic).
  • My child is a U.S. citizen – what do I do now? – U.S. children of Dominican parents
  • Global Estate Planning – what do I do with my assets that are 0utside the Dominican Republic?

Both US and International: 

  • How to better structure businesses and investments in the Dominican Republic from a tax and estate planning perspective.
  •  How Dominican inheritance rules may affect the estates of expatriates who reside in the DR.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of obtaining residency in the Dominican Republic.
  • Opportunities and risks of offshore investment vehicles.
  • Overview of tax incentives in the Dominican Republic.

Speaking on these topics will be Steve Cantor (Cantor & Webb P.A.), Fabio J. Guzmán-Ariza (Guzmán Ariza, Attorneys at Law) and Dr. Christoph Sieger: (Guzmán Ariza, Attorneys at Law).
