FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN REAL PROPERTY TAX ACT (“FIRPTA”): Section 1445 of the Internal Revenue Code provides that a transferee (“Buyer”) of a United States real property interest must withhold tax from the transferor (“Seller”) if the Seller is a foreign person and no exceptions from FIRPTA withholding apply. A Buyer is personally liable for the full amount of FIRPTA withholding tax required to be withheld unless the Seller furnishes Buyer with specific documentation ensuring Buyer is exempt from the withholding requirements as prescribed under 26 USC §1445. Due to the complexity and potential risks of failing to comply with FIRPTA, including the Buyer’s responsibility for withholding the applicable tax, Buyer should seek appropriate legal and tax advice regarding FIRPTA compliance, as Broker will be unable to assure Buyer that the transaction is exempt from the withholding requirements.
