I'm an Australian, non-resident legal alien, and my wife is a German, NRLA. Having consulted the US tax treaties I find that German citizens are not required to pay capital gains tax (Whereas Australians are - 30%) The no - brainer is should we trade with my wife being the principle investor? - yes, *if* I have understood the tax treaty. Does anybody have any experience in this subject? Have I understood this treaty?
