I am an American and my boyfriend is German. We plan to get married here in San Francisco before I move to Germany in September, which removes my company from the visa process. My SF company wants to keep me on as a headcount and is willing to let me work remotely in Germany for 1 year. After that the German location will take me on as their headcount and I will be on their payroll/benefits. If there is a deal made between the two locations can I remain on the US payroll/benefits for 1 year if I am living in Germany with my spouse? If this is a possibility, will the US location be taxed as if I am an expatriate, even though I plan on residing in Germany permanently? I understand that there is the Tax Treaty USA/Germany and I would have to file my taxes with both countries.
I have looked at other questions but haven't found one that mirrors my situation. Any information on this would be very helpful! Thank you so much!!
