I am a US Citizen living in Colorado and presently unemployed. I have been offered a job in Sierra Leone in Africa. I will be working for a UK company on contract for 6 months and they will withhold 30% of my income to pay taxes
in Sierra Leone. I will maintain my residence here and return approximatley every 6 weeks for 3 weeks R&R.
Annual Basic Salary $165,000
Annual Location Alllowance $58,928
My wife will remain in Colorado and has a part time job. Her W2 for 2012 was $13,300.
1) Will I have to pay State and Federal Tax
2) What documentation will I require for my 2013 tax return as I will not get a W2?
3) If I do have to pay US taxes, what progressive (monthly or quarterly) payments be required?
4) Which IRS documents support the responses as I would like to get a copy for my records?
Thank you for your help.
