I have been offered some freelance work for a friend's company in the US. But I want to check out the tax implications first.
First, I am not a US citizen/resident alien, etc. The work would be effectively connected to the US business (I believe) but the work (i.e. services performed) would be done here in Hong Kong.
I have gone through much of Publication 519 and, as far as I can tell, I would not be liable for US tax, e.g. according to the time basis calculation. Is this right?
Any insight into this by someone who has done similar freelance work would be appreciated.
