Very interested in the tax implications of being a consultant.
Could anyone enlighten me on tax implications of being an international consultant? What happens when you work on a project in a different country from your home office? I know this will vary wildly but genuinely just curious.
I am from the US but live in western Europe. I work and pay taxes in Europe, but I still must file each year with the US (fortunately I don't have to pay anything). If I were working for a consulting firm here in Western Europe and I was placed in a project in the US would that then be US income? The paycheck would of course still be going from my home office into my bank account in that country...but the work would be done in the US. Very curious as when you file taxes in the US as an expat you have to give very precise information about your length of stay in the US/what you were doing.
And when I work in other countries in Europe (within or outside of the EU) do I pay taxes to my home office country no matter what?
