Work From Anywhere But Home: Startups Emerge To Turn You Into A Globetrotting Digital Nomad
As digital workers freelance from around the world, startups are popping up to offer them housing, advice, and a place to log on.
An interesting question I haven’t considered: how *does* tax work for someone who roams frequently? I know that when I lived in France but spent one week each month in Seattle that we had to record this and pay different taxes. Likewise pro athletes who compete in California wind up paying California income taxes.
With more people working remotely and therefore being able to roam this seems like the perfect startup idea – build a tool that makes it simple to record time spent with location and generate the correct tax information needed. Of course getting governments to simply adapt to the idea of nomadic workers would be better; good luck with that.
