The New Trump Bill And Foreign Investors
The major new tax issue for foreign investors in the U.S. is how the Trump Tax bill affected tax rates for nonresident individuals and foreign corporations.

The tax rates for foreign investors in the US that are investing in corporate form could amount to a single tax of only 21%. Individual investors may have a US tax on US source income of less than 20% on their taxable income.
