Working Remotely from the US

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster!

My fiance and I are in the final stages of the K1 process, awaiting an interview letter from Montreal.

However, I wanted to pose a question to those of you who may have experienced a similar situation. Andrew works as a software developer for a company in Toronto, who really doesn't want to lose him when he moves here on his K1 visa, and they've offered to keep him, working remotely from our home in Philadelphia! I know this is done fairly regularly, but we're not sure how all the details work. Obviously he'll need employment authorization to start with, but I guess I'm just fairly baffled about the tax situation. Anybody familiar with this kind of situation?

Appreciate it!

Been discussed many times here and the general consensus is that you don't need US immigration's permission to continue working for a Cdn employer.

His employment authorization is from US immigration to work in the US legally - catch my drift? ;) As a Cdn citizen, your soon to be hubster already can legally work in Canada so this is not a US immigration concern.

He should probably seek an accountant's advice about reporting foreign income appropriately on his US taxes but there is a Tax treaty between the 2 countries so it is doable. There are people who do it successfully themselves

I'm sure some VJ Cdns will chime in who are currently in this very situation.
