There is a plethora of issues facing foreign investors in Arizona real estate that needs to be addressed. Many tax professionals and CPA firms do not seem to have what it takes to properly address and resolve these concerns. At Sundin & Fish, PLC, we operate on a three-step process for tackling any issues our foreign clients may be facing.

First, we review and discuss the tax structure for the client and determine if there needs to be a modification to the tax structure. This step is important for potentially lowering the overall tax bill and possibly even reducing the red tape and filing requirements that exist in the US government tax filing system.

We then review all your relevant tax documents, and if applicable, coordinate with your real estate property management company to obtain the income and expense information for your real estate. This process ensures that you have a smooth, quick, and efficient tax filing experience. It is not uncommon for clients to have lost receipts and other tax documents. We make sure to maintain and review your settlement statements, as well as any other documents regarding your real estate.

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