Section 962 is a special election available to individual US shareholders of controlled foreign corporations. It allows individuals to use Subchapter C corporate tax principles to report income from CFCs and foreign tax credits for CFC-paid foreign income tax. It is a valuable technique for American individuals living abroad who own regular businesses in normal countries to reduce their US tax burden.
