  • Earning from India via freelance blogging

    Hi - I was on H1B and returned to India in Dec 2017. I would like to know if its legal to earn in my US Bank account in dollars by working as a freelance writer from India. I will be paying tax as per the law and there is no questions on that. Appreciate experts advice on this.

    Why do you still have US bank accounts since you are not a citizen or PR ?
    Best approach would be to have the US company (that hires you for your project / freelance work) pay you into the Indian account.
    You are not subject to US taxes since your H1 ended, you are outside the country and not a US citizen or PR
    Opinion only. Cannot be construed as legal advice.

      I have closed the US bank account. I am planning to earn from US based company via freelance blogging and they pay in USD. Since I do not have accounts in the USA bank, there is an option to create virtual bank account using Payoneer. I would like to know if this is legal and also am I subjected to tax in the USA. Appreciate your advice on this as I do not wish to continue on this plan if its not legal.
