U.S. citizen and Canadian PR working remotely from Canada for U.S. employer (on W-2)

I am a U.S. citizen and a Canadian permanent resident. Is it OK for me to work remotely from Canada for a U.S. employer? The U.S. employer will be paying me as a regular U.S. employee and withholding taxes for IRS, and will issue W-2. Working as a contractor etc. is not an option. My U.S. employer r...

Re: Starting a new job in US on TN visa while living in Canada

What if the U.S. employer can't put a U.S. citizen on Canadian payroll and only pays them in the U.S. even though they work remotely from Canada? The employer withholds U.S. taxes and issues W-2. How do file Canadian taxes?
