Bud, sorry if I misled.
It’s not a question of avoiding taxation, but of avoiding mandatory WITHHOLDING. Non-residents must automatically have a relatively high (details escape me) % of certain kinds of profits WITHHELD. This guy is not trying to avoid taxation, but is participating in the all-american sport of avoiding OVER taxation.
Anyway, thanks for the input.
