it depends entirely on the employment contract and the country of work

whether there is a tax treaty depends on the latter. by default the US enacts taxes regardless of where the income is earned. on a personal level, my employer has a favorable flat tax rate for employees assigned to certain locations, regardless of local tax policies (i.e. company takes care of the difference)
