I'm a non-resident of the US and I've never been to the US. However, I have an LLC in the US. I sell computer software warranty services where we fix computer problems remotely from India. I have a US-based LLC with a US-based business account that gets all my income. I then transfer it to my Indian business account.

Do I pay tax to the US and then also pay it in India for my income, or does my American partner, who holds 15% of the monthly income, pay tax in the US for his income?

We are not selling and physical goods and all transactions take place on the internet.

Of course you do, what kind of question is this? You have income earned in the US by a US entity, and the entity is taxed. Since LLC is a disregarded entity - the tax shifts to you personally.

You should file form 1040NR. You should also talk to a tax professional who's proficient in the Indo-US tax treaty, since it may affect your situation.

It depends and I would not just jump into conclusion as I have seen cases where offering some services are not U.S. sourced income. I'll advise you speak with a knowledgeable tax professional.
