I am a Laravel, RoR, Angular and JS developer moving to Japan with my Japanese wife on a spouse visa. I currently work full-time remotely for a company here in the United States. They are wanting to keep me on but I am trying to figure out how to avoid dual taxation so I only have to pay Japan tax.
If one is registered under a trade name, can you avoid dual taxation if you are a U.S Citizen? I saw you recommended that in another post. I heard if you are technically working as self-employed you cannot fall under the Foreign Earned Income tax credit, even if you are living in Japan. Is this true? If so, how can I setup myself in Japan to avoid getting hit with US and Japan tax?
I will obviously seek legal advice from a tax accountant but just wanted input from someone who has had first hand experience settling down in Japan.
Thanks so much!
