What is FIRPTA?
FIRPTA is a federal withholding (or retention) that is issued to a non-resident who is
selling their asset or property in the USA. When a property is sold, the Closing Agent will withhold
15% of the sale price and send this amount to the IRS. When the seller later submits his tax return,
the IRS will determine if the withholding amount was sufficient.
If the withholding amount too low, then you pay more during the filing
If the withholding amount is higher than necessary, then the IRS will issue a refund of the overage
It is important to know when FIRPTA applies to the sale of your real estate property or
asset. There are numerous ways to prevent FIRPTA. We will discuss that later on this page.
FIRPTA Applies When:
Property is directly owned by a Foreign National or Non-Resident
Property sales price is over $300,000
The Buyer will not be living in the Property
