The talk, titled “Buying the American Dream — or Nightmare? The Tax Consequences of U.S. Real Estate Purchases by Foreign Persons,” is scheduled from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at SBAOR, 1415 Chapala St. in Santa Barbara.

In his international practice, Johnson represents Americans with assets or family members abroad; Americans living abroad; U.S. residents who are citizens of another country and may have assets abroad; and non-U.S. citizens who are planning to immigrate to the U.S. or who own property in the U.S.

Johnson also advises individuals and families in all stages of the estate planning process — from the initial creation of complex estate plans, to the updating of such plans and, finally, in the post-death administration of estates and trusts.

Johnson earned his bachelor’s degree from Principia College in Elsah, Ill., in 1994, then went on to earn his juris doctorate degree from the University of Missouri School of Law in 1998 and his master of laws degree in estate planning from the University of Miami School of Law in 2009, where he graduated first in his class.

He has been chosen to be a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and was recently awarded a STEP Advanced Certificate in International Succession and Probate with Distinction. Johnson is also a member of the Santa Barbara Estate Planning Council, the American Bar Association and the Santa Barbara County Bar Association.

He is licensed to practice law in California, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and the U.S. Tax Court.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
