(Before I even start, the automatic reply people give is "you cannot work on an H4" - and I fully understand that. But my situation is not normal - and that's why I have detailed it in this post.)
I am an Indian Passport holder working in Canada on a work-Visa. My
husband has got a job in the US and has got his H1B Visa (and I got my
H4). So, we will be moving to the US.
My Canadian employer has asked me if I can work from home in the US. I
would like to know if this is legally permissible.
(1) I will be working for a Canadian company (freelance contract)
(2) I will be working from home (in the US)
(3) I will be paid via bank transfer (to a US bank) and will pay taxes
in the US
(4) The product I am working on is not sold in the US
My work involves editing of web-content (note that this web content is
provided for free on the web-site).
Could someone kindly advise me regarding this?
Is there an email address or phone number where I can directly ask this
question to an INS officer?
Thanks to all who respond.
