Here's the situation: I'm French and I was legally employed by a US company but working remotely from France until Dec 30th, 2012. I arrived in the US on Dec 30.
I was on the company's payroll for this whole period, and had taxes withheld based on a non-resident status (no deduction allowed).
So I now need to file my taxes. The problem is, I don't understand why I should even pay taxes in the US. Even though I was working for an American company on US business stuff (nothing related to France whatsoever), my fiscal domicile was in France, so I should only pay taxes in France, right?
So, in my tax return, can I say that I had no US revenue at all during this whole year?
