<<Nope. That is NOT the way it is. If dad is a US citizen, he is required to file and pay taxes on worldwide income from all sources. If he is a NON US citizen, the rules change. But from the sound of your post, he sounds like a citizen.

Looks like dad is a tax cheat, making me pay more than my "fair share". I'll forward this post to the IRS CID division so they can track down your entire famly (just kidding...don't panic).>>

Nope. My dad is NOT a US citizen, he is a Spanish citizen living in Colombia. How does it work for him in this case?

I'm not a US citizen either, but I do work and reside in the US.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Ander
