Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act

Issue Summary Overview

NAA/NMHC Issue Fact Sheet: The Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) taxes foreigners’ gains on the income they earn from, and then the sale of, U.S. real estate and
other real property. FIRPTA imposes significant costs on foreign investors in U.S. real estate, thereby serving as a significant barrier to such investment. Reforming FIRPTA could unlock
billions in foreign capital that could help to refinance real estate loans and drive new investment.
