Hi everyone, I feel like this is a really basic question but after the research I have done this far including on this site,I am still quite lost:
A US based ETF (bought on TDAmeritrade in my case), in terms of dividends will pay 15% in L2TW but it can be recouped later so it’s basically 0%? Am I missing something? This is what I got out of the great post on taxes on the main site…
I am trying to figure out if I should invest on a european or US broker… This becomes relevant also when leaving Switzerland because in my home country 15% will be withhold by default in the US, that I know for a fact. I hope someone here can tell me it’s an obvious choice so I can check this out of my list. It would be of great help.
I have been advised to stick to the US versions of the ETFs bought on a US broker, sell everything just before moving out and buy again. (Back home there are taxes on capital gains.) All this between changing fiscal address… Is this normal practice?
Thank you in advance.
