Freelancing in foreign countries with TN status in US


Recommended Posts



I am a Canadian citizen working with TN visa in US for over 8 yrs. I have a few freelancing opportunities to provide engineering consulting in the energy sector for some local Canadian companies in Canada. 

Can someone please advise if it is legal to work freelancing outside my regular duty hours for overseas companies while on TN status? I plan to deposit the income in my Canadian bank account and would like to report the overseas income during my tax return filing in US if this practice is considered legal.
