    International Estate Planning is a practical and authoritative guide to a tremendously complex field. It provides indispensable information to lawyers, accountants, and other practitioners who work on estate planning with clients who have issues involving other countries. The book is divided into two main parts: Part One addresses the tax issues; Part Two addresses the non-tax issues. The focus of the book is on estate planning to avoid wealth transfer taxes with references to income taxes. 

    Topics include clients who may:
    • Own homes outside the U.S. 
    • Have children or parents who live in other countries 
    • Have a spouse who is not a citizen 
    • Work for a multinational corporation in an office abroad 
    • Be “foreigners” who have investments in the United States

  • "This is a superb work that will serve as a handy reference for both experts and novices confronted with multinational estate planning problems. The excellent organization and clearly written text assure quick and reliable answers to critical issues. The appendix is especially helpful, putting at the reader's fingertips relevant treaties and tax forms. A terrific job."
    - Professor Jeffrey Schoenblum (Author of Multistate and Multinational Estate Planning), Vanderbilt Law School
     
    "The not-so-secret wish of most lawyers is to be able to become at least conversant in new or complicated areas of the law by reading a few pages (instead of many volumes) that are written by an expert and are clear. Barbara Hauser's book offers just that. It is concise yet remarkably comprehensive in scope, briefly explaining virtually every area of the law of international estate planning that the non-expert practitioner needs to know. I recommend it highly."
    - Alexander Bove, Attorney and Solicitor, Editor in Chief of Asset Protection Journal, of The Law Firm of Alexander A. Bove, Jr., PC (Boston)
     
    "I only wish this book had been written sooner. With its help I might have understood more quickly how to reconcile the concepts of civil law and United States law. I would strongly recommend it to anyone involved in estate and tax planning." 
    - Jean-Marc Tirard, of Tirard Naudin (Paris), author and Founder of STEP France
     
    "In the area of estate planning there are hardly any publications which deal with these complicated matters in a practical manner. International Estate Planning. A Reference Guide is an exception to the rule. It explains all the difficult concepts in estate planning in an easily understandable way without simplifying matters. This is an indispensable guide for estate planners dealing with international issues."
    - Frans Sonneveldt, Mazars Paardekooper Hoffman, The Netherlands and Professor at the University of Utrecht
