Norweigan Citizen/U.S. Resident Alien

edited March 2012 in International Issues

We had an employee from Norway who worked here for several years. They decided to move back to Norway temporarily (we think) to be closer to family.

Because they were working on a special project, we decided we would continue them for a short period of time, before taxes were required in Norway at the 180 day mark.

The business unit wants to continue this employee in the same situation (we have denied), but asked what happens if the employee returns for several weeks in the summer. Would the "tax clock" start ticking all over again? My thought is that it does not matter - in essence this person does not look like they have the "intent" to return to the US permanently.

I'd be interested to hear what others think.
