Foreign Investment in Colorado Real Estate

Foreign investment in Colorado (CO) real estate continues to increase.  It seems that foreign investors have a healthy appetite for a variety of real estate, including single family homes, commercial buildings and apartment buildings. With the turnaround in the market, this investment stands to increase in the coming years.

But many foreign investors don’t understand the tax issues associated with foreign ownership in US real estate.  The questions they need to have answered include (among others):

  • How am I taxed at the federal level?
  • How am I taxed at the state level?
  • When are the tax returns due?
  • Are there any elections that need to be filed?
  • How do I get a tax ID #?
  • What does it cost to file the returns?
  • Are there any tax strategies that I can implement to lower my tax bill?

Foreign investors in Colorado real estate have many issues that need to be addressed.  It has been our experience that many CPA firms and tax professionals just don’t have the experience in addressing these issues.  We address our foreign client concerns by using a three step process.

First, we review and discuss the tax structure for the client and determine if there needs to be a modification to the structure.  This is potentially to lower the overall tax bill or possibly to reduce the red tape and filing requirements.

Second, we review all your relevant tax documents and also can coordinate with your real estate property management company to obtain the income and expenses for your real estate.  The goal of course is to save you time and ensure that the filing is efficient.  It is not uncommon for clients to have lost receipts and other tax documents.  We make sure to maintain and review your settlement statements and also any other real estate related documents.

Lastly, we finalize your Colorado state and federal tax returns and review the results with you.  We again review and analyze your situation to ensure that you are maximizing your tax deductions and minimizing your tax liability.  Each situation is different, but our goal is to lower your tax bill and make sure that your returns are reviewed for “red flags”.

We help foreign clients who have purchased real estate throughout the state of Colorado.  We have a team of tax professionals that can help you every step of the way.  Do not fear the IRS or the state of Colorado as there are many options at your disposal.

Any CPA or accountant can help you pull your tax documents together, but many are not qualified to deal with foreign investors.  But you need a firm who is competent in dealing with these issues.  Can us today at 480-361-9400.
