More Info
  • What is FIRPTA?
  • FIRPTA is a federal withholding (or retention) that is issued to a non-resident who is selling their asset or property in the USA. When a property is sold, the Closing Agent will withhold 15% of the sale price and send this amount to the IRS. When the seller later submits his tax return, the IRS will determine if the withholding amount was sufficient.
  • If the withholding amount too low, then you pay more during the filing
  • If the withholding amount is higher than necessary, then the IRS will issue a refund of the overage amount.
