shipwright: your status would probably be considered ‘Non-Resident Alien”. This quote is from ‘investopedia.com:

_*Resident aliens are taxed on all earned income as if they were U.S. citizens, but a nonresident alien is not taxed in the same way. For a nonresident alien, only income that is generated from U.S. sources, excluding certain investments such as stocks, is subject to taxation. For example, if you live in England and own a company that operates in the U.S., but you have not been to the U.S. for five years and don’t have a green card (a non-resident alien), the income generated by the business will be subject to U.S. tax. Dividends are taxed at 30% for every non-resident alien, while capital gains are not subject to U.S. tax. _Read more: http://www.investopedia.com/terms/n/nonresidentalien.asp#ixzz28iUJCMv1_*_ End of quote. you can find your way, as long as you take compliance issues very seriously. I know a bit about cross-border issues, though my situation is a bit different from yours.
