One of the most under-covered areas (on the Web) of US tax law for expats concerns SE tax obligations. There is a lot of bad information out there. Moreover, I think that this area of tax law has some “gray areas.”
What I–and probably thousands of others–would like to see are comments from knowledgeable posters about the employment structures that would effectively insulate an expat from the SE tax obligation.
Is it enough that the expat is employed by a foreign corporation, even if the corporation is owned by the expat? Must there be other employees/shareholders of the corp? What about a sole proprietorship owned by a third party foreigner that employs the expat? What if the third party is a spouse or live-in partner? (And if so, what if they had a business relationship predating the romantic relationship?)
That’s just for example.
