Tax treaties between the United States and other countries cover a variety of topics, including income. The treaties create a parallel Federal tax law to the Internal Revenue Code, and sometimes it is useful to opt out of the Code and into the treaties for tax planning purposes.  In this presentation, we will focus on individual taxpayers:  when are tax treaty elections permitted, how you make an election, and how you decide whether making a treaty election is a good idea.
