so i've been trying to figure this out...
i am an US citizen, and when i used to work part-time, i paid my income tax every year like everyone else.
i just moved to Hong Kong recently, and am now working at my father's company. now this is where it gets complicated...i used to be a resident here from 1995 to 1997, complete with ID card and whatnot (while still keeping my US citizenship) - when i tried to get a SmartID this year, they told me that since i did not apply for an adult ID (i was 13 at the time in 1995), i would have to reapply for a resident ID (as opposed to a perma-resident one).
now the question is, after i reapply and get my ID back, can i be hired as a HK resident or do i still have to apply for a work visa? and how would my taxes work out? i know i would have to pay HK tax no matter what...but how about the US tax? as far as US is concerned, i have no job and therefore, no income..
so i guess the question is, what options do i have to end up paying for the least tax possible? i.e. taxed in HK and not taxed in US...
thanks in advance =)
