The only other way to avoid FIRPTA is via a withholding certificate. If FIRPTA withholding exceeds the maximum tax liability realized on the sale of the real property, sellers can appeal to the IRS for a lower withholding amount.
The certification carries significant risks for the buyer and, by extension, for closing agents, real estate agents, and brokers. If the seller does not pay the required tax, and if the buyer fails to meet the residence requirement, then the buyer could be liable for the tax not withheld.
Under FIRPTA, a buyer who purchases U.S. real estate from a foreign seller is obligated to withhold from seller's proceeds, and submit to the IRS, a percentage of the sales price of the U.S. real property.
The basics: What FIRPTA is and how it works In most cases, the buyer is responsible for making sure the IRS receives its money within 20 days. The buyer usually is the withholding agent and is ultimately responsible for sending the funds to the IRS.
FIRPTA is a tax law that imposes U.S. income tax on foreign persons selling U.S. real estate. Under FIRPTA, if you buy U.S. real estate from a foreign person, you may be required to withhold 10% of the amount realized from the sale. The amount realized is normally the purchase price.

FIRPTA (Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act) is a withholding tax on the sale of US real property by a foreign person. With certain exceptions, the purchaser must withhold and remit tax of up to 15% of the gross selling price to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of the seller.
The Internal Revenue Code (Code) provides the exemption to FIRPTA withholding titled "Residence where Amount Realized does not exceed $300,000". This exemption from FIRPTA withholding is applicable if the transferee is acquiring the USRPI as a residence and the amount realized is $300,000 or less.
