One of the major misconceptions about U.S. taxes for non-residents is that if you do NOT have a dependent agent in the U.S., it is NOT possible to create a U.S. trade or business (USTOB) and generate effectively connected income (ECI).

There is NO such rule.

It is possible to have zero dependent agents in the U.S. and STILL CREATE a US trade or business.  This one is on several websites that basically say to have USTOB or ETBUS (engaged in a U.S. trade or business), you MUST have a dependent agent.

Again this is NOT true, and there is no such rule. 

Dependent agents are part of the permanent establishment rules which come into play under an Income Tax Treaty Analysis. Dependent agents also comes into play when you review Foreign Source Income Becomes ECI via a US office.

Here are the most common situations and where we can help file your U.S. tax returns with our tax partners:

  • Formed a U.S. single-member LLC disregarded owned by a foreign entity or foreign individual. If the LLC is engaged in a U.S. trade or business, that will impact the number of tax returns.

  • Formed a U.S. LLC taxed as a corporation or a corporation. The most common situation where this comes up is to complete a W-9 on Amazon or Walmart, which creates a U.S. taxpayer. Price transfer studies are a separate service.

  • Filing a protective 1120F and form 8833 for a non-resident company that may be engaged in a U.S. trade or business.
