My husband and I are planning to move from the U.S. to Portugal in the next couple of years. I will have a small pension from my state-government job, which will provide enough annually for the minimum required under the D7 (I would be retiring early due to the nature of my career). My husband is a full-time, permanent remote employee for a U.S.-based corporation, which will allow him to work anywhere. His salary would provide the bulk of our income once I retire early. Would he be permitted to continue working remotely on a D7 visa, or would we both have to be retired?
I have seen conflicting information about whether he would be able to work on the D7 visa, and whether his income would be counted.
I am also curious if there are other Americans who work remotely, do you pay Portuguese taxes on your income, do you still pay state taxes from our U.S.-based state, or do you only pay U.S. federal taxes?
I would also be interested in any recommendations for lawyers who can assist us in navigating the visa/property/tax requirements.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
