Hi everyone. Question: I'm LPR and have a house in my home country that I'm selling.
I need to spent half year there to sell the house (in Russia you are paying 0% from home sale if you are tax resident and 30% if not (and 30% not from gain, from whole sale price!), to become a tax resident you need to spent inside country 6 months). I'm little bit worried about breaking continuous residence and delaying becoming a citizen or having troubles returning back. But I think with two 3 months trips should be fine, if I:
not taking a job there
keep using my USA banks accounts and phone numbers
keep working remotely (graphical freelance) and paying taxes
So, main concern:
I was thinking about claiming my house as main residence for that 3 + 3 months period on USA tax return (to avoid capital gain tax).
But, will it be a reason to consider my continuous residence in USA broken for this period? (for naturalisation )
Thanks a lot for any answer
