Working online for home country while waiting for AOS

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have an odd scenario question.

I am currently employed at a community college in Canada (Algonquin College), my supervisor has hinted about me possibly teaching some online course material for my program.

My question is, (once my K1 is approved, I move to the USA and get married), after I apply for my AOS, can I work for a Canadian company while I wait for my AOS to go through?

I know you can't work in the US, but since this would be a Canadian company would that be legal? What if I had my paycheck deposited into a Canadian bank account?

I want to make sure I do everything legally, and don't jeopardize my AOS, so if anyone has any experience with a situation like this, opinions, or even better links to official documentation, that would be greatly appreciated!

Mainly a tax issue.

What tax issue?


The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.

You have US taxation to deal with.
