As the U.S. Treasury Department continues to tighten its noose around offshore accounts, a new tax haven has sprung up under its nose in the Caribbean. Welcome to   Puerto Rico–island of tropical breezes, and (for new arrivals   only) a 0% tax rate on certain dividends, interest and capital gains.


Because residents of the island are considered U.S. citizens but subject to different tax laws, Americans avoid paying an exit tax of 23.8% on unrealized capital gains when relocating to Puerto Rico. All this makes Act 20 and 22 tax incentives appealing to owning real estate in Puerto Rico. The Act 20 and 22 incentives expire on December 31, 2035 and include 100% exemption on dividends, interest on capital gains for these new bona fide residentsof Puerto Rico. To that end, individuals must be present physically on the Island 183 days in the year and cannot have been residents in PR 15 years before the date in which Act became effective. BDO, international firm of tax advisors, has established presence around the World to better inform on rules and requirements.
