The fundamentals of international tax for the small business owner or the foreign investor seems impossible to understand.
And this is why: What you read on the web has too much jargon. Words like PFIC, Subpart F, effectively connected income are explained with more jargon and reference to tax code sections or IRS regulations.
I wish I could explain the fundamentals in one page blog. However, this is too many concepts and loopholes to fit into a blog.
A few years ago, I decided to invest time and money (I hired an editor) to write my book, International Taxation in America for the Entrepreneur. After many rewrites and giving the book to my business clients to read and criticize, I created an easier to read book.
I know your time is precious. So, my goal was to write a foreign tax book that you can read in two hours. Then, I spent more money and hired a professional voice over reader to create an audiobook.
Learn the Fundamentals of International Tax Law with the audiobook
I hired Amazon Createspace to produce the book and audiobook. You can buy the Kindle version is only $9.50 and add the audiobook.
Amazon’s a new technology (called whispersync) reads the book for you with your Kindle version. Whispersync can read the entire book or you can activate whispersync when you want to take a break from reading.
What is great about Amazon is they will give you a complete refund of the Kindle version if you do not like the book. The Kindle cost $9.50 (here is the link).
I understand that you may be skeptical that an international tax CPA can write an easy to read offshore tax book. To be honest, it many years and I did need professional help. Explaining foreign taxes and offshore taxes with little jargon is an art form. My book is the best international tax book for the small business owner and international investor.
Now, if you want to learn more about the book or just have an international tax question, please give me, Brian Dooley, CPA, MBT at call at 949-939-3414. I never charge for telephone calls.
Meanwhile here is a short video, created by Amazon, about the book.
