Our diverse firm culture with team members who fluently speak English, Spanish, Portuguese or French, allows us to provide our clients with personalized attention.

Our International Tax department offers a variety of services.
INTERNATIONAL TAX COMPLIANCE
The U.S. International Tax laws are very complex and our clients entrust to us the responsibility of navigating the plethora of IRS Forms to properly and timely file each one of them. The penalties for missing an international tax form is significant (such as the FBAR/Form 114). You can rest assured that at RVG & Company we will handle your tax compliance needs so you can have peace of mind.
Real estate agents, title companies and their clients alike rely on RVG & Company expertise to provide the proper advice when a foreign investor decides to buy or sell U.S. real estate property or investment. Upon the sales of a U.S. real estate investment (property or interest), the seller may be subject to a 15% (or higher in certain cases) withholding tax on the sales price of the property, regardless if they have a gain or loss. Utilizing the proper vehicles allowed by the Internal Revenue Code, our clients might be able to lower or eliminate this withholding tax before sending the funds to the IRS. It is important, however, to contact us before closing to have the best outcome possible
RVG & Company is proud to be an IRS Acceptance Agent which means that we can certify the required documents that need to be attached to the ITIN application. There is no longer the need for a client to go to their embassy or consulate to certify copies of their passports and visas. Furthermore, we ensure that the client meets the eligibility for an ITIN avoiding delays in processing. This expertise is especially important for foreign clients that are requesting refunds due to taxes withheld from their income. Athletes, entertainers, professional consultants, and others are some of the examples where this situation may apply.
