Keeping a UK job while living in US

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance's interview is around the corner, and I'm hoping for him to be moving here in about a month or so. He is a web designer, and currently works for a small company. His boss is willing to let him keep working from the US (since everything is internet based anyway), but Rob and I are both worried that this will pose some problems with taxes and EAD. We know that he has to apply for work authorization after he's here, but we're concerned that not having his EAD will make him ineligible for all work, not just work in the US for a US company. The money he'd make from working at his UK job would be directly deposited to his bank account in England, and his mom would be able to access the money to send it to us if we need it, but we're unsure if either he or his employer would have to pay some US tax for him doing his work here.

So, my questions are...

1. Is it a problem to work for a UK company while living in the US without EAD?

2. Will he or his company have to pay any kind of tax for this? (I know this is not a visa question, but I thought someone might have experience with this).

I'd appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks!
