Content of the Course
We will examine the tax treatment of internationally active enterprises, from both a US-American and a German perspective. The income tax law of most countries imposes this tax in a limited way on nonresident individuals and corporations who are active in the country. These tax consequences are sometimes duplicative of the income tax imposed by the home countries of the same individuals and corporations. International tax treaties have the primary goal of removing these duplicative tax burdens. In this course, the pre-treaty law of the USA and Germany as well as the tax treaty law between the two countries provide the primary subject matter. The course also includes comparisons of this subject matter with the income tax law of other countries for nonresidents.
