U.S. taxpayers have multiple options for electing how the United States will tax their foreign subsidiaries. Many factors go into selecting the appropriate entity classification election, and that selection can have dramatic effects on global tax liabilities.

Complicating matters further are the proposed regulations of Section 367, which have introduced changes that can result in an entity classification election becoming a taxable event.
