My husband and I were seconded from the US as professors to

Hello, my husband and I were seconded from the US as professors to teach in the UK from 2012-2014. I amA dual Bulgarian/US citizen and he is a German Citizen with US green card (he was labeled a third party US national when we were seconded). Under Article 20 in the UK/US tax agreement we were exempt from paying UK taxes for two years. However we decided to permanently stay in the UK after (we left the UK for two weeks and returned) and subsequently got another job with a UK company (now paying regular UK taxes on that salary). Since we are EU citizens but not UK citizens does this mean we will have to retroactively pay the taxes we were exempt for in the preceding two years? Our lawyer told us that at the end of the tax treaty period we can elect to pay taxes in the UK or US...We never received anything from HMRC.

I was advised by legal counsel that 401k withdrawals are not

I was advised by legal counsel that 401k withdrawals are not treated as the taxable incomes that determine the amount of monthly payment in an income-based student loan repayment plan. Pensions do count. Is it correct, then, that if my income is a combination of pension and 401k monthly withdrawal, only the pension is used to calculate the monthly student loan payment.

My US employer based in California is offering me a position

My US employer based in California is offering me a position to start up an operation in Ireland. Prior to moving to Ireland I will be selling my house in California. My question is about the tax requirements. While in Ireland I will be paid by my California based US employer. 1) Since I'm selling my house in California and will be gone for 12-18 month my employer should not withhold state tax correct? 2) Would I need to file a California state return if I'm not living in the state? 3) Would I file and exemption with the IRS so federal taxes are not withheld while I'm overseas? 4) I would have taxes withheld by the PAYE system in Ireland correct? 5) At the end of the year I would file federal taxes since i"m a US citizen but would have the double taxation treaty to minimize any federal taxes at the end of the year? If the above is correct please advise and what forms would I need to fill out for exemptions in the US?

We are British & have the opportunity to live in the US for 2.5 years.I would be working & we would both have visas & social security numbers.We have a business in the UK which we would continue to run from the US & be taxed by the UK government (Corp tax & we pay PAYE & NI).I thought there was an agreement between US & UK not to double tax & have asked the employers if I could be self employed & handle my own tax, but have been told I will have to be taxed at source by my job in the US.It will not be a high income, so it won't be much.Is there a way I could claim any tax paid in the US back? Is this a situation which would be complex & mean we would have to have an accountant who knows both countries' tax laws & procedures, to sort it all out for us or could it be simpler than that?

I live in the US and own an investment property UK and I'm the sole income earner in a marriage. Can I set up a “management company” or “trust” which pays my wife to run the company which manages the property? Or could I use the income from the rent coming from the property?US/UK align their tax systems thus can I claim additional tax relief for paying my wife within this company? i.e. give her a salary of 15k per year reducing my taxable income by 15k?
