I live and am based in Europe. I'm currently looking for a remote job with a US company and I'd need some clarification about taxes.
When I look at job positions I see that some companies add the salary amount which is surely gross. What I'd need to know is:
1. If I'm hired as a contractor, will the gross salary they mention be taxed by US (so what I'll receive will be a smaller amount) or will I only have to pay taxes for the country I'm based in?
2. Can a US company recruit employed staff in Europe (or in a country where they don't have offices)?
Thank you very much in advance for your time and help. It's all very very much appreciated!
