Course Description

This program will explore in detail the FDII deduction made available as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including how it significantly buttresses arguments for multinational business enterprises to centralize activities in the United States. The program, presented by Patrick J. McCormick, will cover requirements for the deduction (who is eligible to claim the deduction and which income is deductible) and explore in detail how it can create tax savings for multinationals with foreign-sourced income.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify taxpayers eligible for the FDII deduction

  • Determine which transactions qualify for FDII deduction benefits

  • Outline how the FDII deduction can be used in conjunction with American tax treaties to provide global tax efficiencies

  • Identify how the FDII deduction (and domestication of multinational activities) compares with GILTI inclusions/foreign incorporation
