I am new to this US tax thing, so basically my net salary will be $25,800 USD, right? That being said, it's 14% in taxes deducted. So if I'm making $100/day gross, I'm taking home $86.00/day net, correct? Thanks in advance. 8)

Why on earth would you feel the need to return every 6 months?! Doing so does make you appear that you want to live continuously in Canada -- and thus be continuosly taxed in Canada as well.
