My friend X is an US Citizen, working in the software space as a freelancer.
X is currently physically located outside of the US (and has been so for the vast part of the current 2015-2016 tax year).
While X works physically outside of the US, the money X earns is wire transferred to X's US bank account.
X also has employees where he is (overseas), but has not technically created in a company (either with the US or the country he is in).
What is X's tax situation? Who should X consult? It's a complex situation perhaps and X would like to avoid a heavy hit tax-wise this year.
Should X form a company, would that save X in taxes? Or is it too late since the tax year will be coming to a close soon?
Can X even pay taxes from outside of the US?
