What are reasons to buy S&P 500 ETFs from US over buying from UK?
From my limited knowledge, US held stocks are subject to a whopping 30% tax on dividends. I want to ask why are there still so many people looking to buy S&p ETFs, or any stock for that matter which pays dividends, from US? Im sure there something im missing here.
Also if I were to reinvest the dividends back, would that be subject to the tax also?
Generally for any ETF:
U.S. domiciled: often cheaper annual fee-wise, often more liquid, worse dividend tax treatment, more ETF alternatives (sectors, subsectors),
Ireland domiciled: often (tolerably) slightly more expensive, the important ones are liquid enough, better dividend tax treatment
