PLAN CAREFULLY! The Federal Estate Tax exemption for US citizens is $5.45 million in 2016, but foreigners get NO FET exemption – excepting just $60,000.

According to JPM, a Foreign Corporation (FC) can avoid the entire US Federal Estate Tax (FET), but a foreign individual would get clipped of about 40% of his US stocks, bonds, homes, land holdings, and other US situs property by the IRS.

JPMorgan/Chase: “Because stock of a foreign corporation (in a no tax haven) is not subject to U.S. estate tax, holding U.S. situs assets through a foreign corporation constitutes a planning opportunity.”

The Caribbean tax havens have grown to rival New York and London as a place to hold family assets, and the US FET is one reason why there are so many offshore companies there.
480,000 IBCs in BVI;
100,000 “exempt companies” in Cayman;
45,000 IBCs in the Bahamas;
30,000 cos in Bermuda
25,000 IBCs in Anguilla

None of the Caribbean (tax) havens levy an estate tax.
