Ashley Weyenberg's Summary

I am a Manager at EY (Ernst & Young LLP) working in the firm's National Tax Department in Washington, DC. I am a member of the individual global tax planning group (IGTP) providing tax advice on international income and wealth transfer matters for ultra high net worth, business-connected individual clients.

More specifically, I specialize in providing international estate planning advice, focusing primarily on cross–border transfer taxes (gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer taxes), transfer tax treaty application, and matters relating to foreign trust classification, planning, and taxation for ultra–high net worth, business–connected families.

I also handle various international income tax matters, including offshore voluntary disclosure, residency classification, pre–immigration planning, controlled foreign corporations, passive foreign investment companies, expatriation, matters related to inbound/outbound investments, treaty application, and foreign reporting and compliance.

If I can help you, let’s connect!

Ashley Weyenberg's Publications

  • Guide to International Estate Planning; Chapter: United States Tax—International compliance considerations for the individual client

    • American Bar Association—Real Property Trust and Estates Group
    • November 2013

    This chapter focuses on the reporting requirements and burdens placed on these taxpayers by the United States (“US”) tax compliance system as a result of holding assets or earning income from outside the US or as a nonresident alien. US reporting obligations may arise due to an individual’s US residency or citizenship, the entity or structure an individual chooses to employ for non-US investment, or the jurisdiction where an individual lives or invests. US tax compliance obligations for reporting foreign income and assets are complex and growing. Since 2008, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) has increased its enforcement efforts with respect to foreign reporting and the US Congress has introduced several new reporting requirements for US residents with foreign assets and for foreign entities that receive US source income.
