Reporting that you are living in the US while not actually living in the US can always be problematic.Thank you for your detailed posts! This has been so helpful as I've been scouring the internet for Hours!!
I do have a question, and it's ok if you don't have an answer. First a little background; I am currently on an H1 visa and I have had a Canadian PR since 2018. I finally decided to move in June 2020 even though my company is starting my Greencard process, and I am trying to decide on either one of these 2 options:
1. Remain an employee while working remotely from Canada. I called my payroll to find out if we had payroll set-up for Canada and we don't. The system is also not set up to have Canadian addresses. So what are the implications if I decide to keep my current address (my sister lives there now) in the HRIS system? This way, I'll still have US taxes deducted from my paycheck and I'll file my CA taxes afterward. Are there any implications of this for my employer? I specified the employer because my research shows that I can get away with it as long as I declare my income to CA & US. I am trying to prevent a situation whereby my employer ends up being fined by the IRS for this arrangement.
2. Apart from the fees, is there anything else I need to be aware of when going with a PEO? Are there any advantages of going through this route that trumps maintaining my "employee" status with my current company?
Also, are there any recommended PEOs?
Thank you so much for your help!
