Any implications of getting a US ITIN for a non-American in Switzerland?


I (non-American, non-Swiss, living in Switzerland) am considering making a real-estate investment in the US, which will require me to get a US ITIN number, and to submit tax return forms in the US for a few years.

Could it have any negative implications for my life in Switzerland? E.g would the Swiss banks or authorities consider me a “US person” for any matter and have any new restrictions or requirements for me?


You need to check with a lawyer, It’s maybe better to buy the RE through an LLC.

Why would you buy RE in the US ? Maybe a RE fund is cheaper, easier to manage and less risky
