The main purpose of the Manager's Guide to International Tax is to show business managers, CEOs, and CFOs how tax laws affect global management decision-making. The book also serves as a training manual or reference guide for professionals such as accountants, lawyers, enrolled agents, and other tax advisors who wish to gain insight into the field of international taxation. Part I of the book is a case study (or ‘tax novella’) called La Brienza Winery: Tax Trouble in Wine Country that illustrates how managers confront international tax challenges in the real world. It tells the story of Professor Xavier Montenegro and his tax advice to the owners/managers of a Northern California winery with expanding global operations. Part II of the book contains additional materials on the U.S. and Canadian tax rules governing different cross-border planning strategies. The attached excerpt provides the first two chapters of La Brienza Winery.
