The #FBAR Marriage – A Troublesome Union

I was just recently interviewed on Canadian TV in 3 different sessions covering the US tax complications when a US person and non-US person are married (US income tax, gift tax, estate tax). I am being interviewed by John Richardson, a Canadian and US attorney. John calls this phenomenon the #FBARMarriage.

Some marriages don’t last — perhaps in some cases due to the unique stresses of the #FBARMarriage.  Well, a whole new set of complexities arise with the #FBARDivorce! You can read about those here and here.

You may find the interviews of interest… or perhaps you have colleagues who may find them of interest. Please pass them on.

Here are links to all 3 in the series!
