I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
I believe that publishing your books through a US LLC would allow you to keep receiving your social security benefits abroad.
So, you could still write your books (and receive royalties off your previously written books) while living abroad and drawing social security
Do you have any further questions for me today?
The IRS publication talks about "requirement to report" any work outside the U.S. If I am working via the U.S. LLC, would that need to be reported ?
No, that would not need to be reported
Hello, I have a few more questions, somewhat related. It now looks likely that I will also work 45 hours a month as a part time employee of Oracle APAC, paid in Philippine pesos. My intent is to apply for Social Security benifits prior to starting this part time employment.
Where would the income from Oracle APAC be reported? Would it count as "earned income"? I expect that I will be paying Philippine income tax on this income. How will that impact my U.S. income tax?
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
