Lafayette, LA asked in Immigration Law and Tax Law for Louisiana

Q: Israeli on a longterm visa in the US, how are taxes calculated?

My friend is self employed, and in fact pays -me-, we're trying to get him immigrated here since most of the team is US based. He pays himself 3k a month from our crowdsourced funds. Can anybody explain whether or not he'd be paying israeli taxes if he was living here for the duration of his visa, and if so, where can we find resources or someone to explain how to go about setting things up? We don't want to dodge taxes or anything, we just want to get everything squared away while we try to get him US citizenship.
