Kill yourself midge. Don't underestimate an American in 'not America.'

Also I get 8 weeks of vacation, you?

A) If you work outside of the US, to maintain tax free status, you can not step foot on US soil for a year. That includes vacations. Most folks will have their wife/family meet them somewhere, like Singapore, Taiwan, etc for their two week vacation.

B) Chances are you will stay every single minute inside the compound. I spent 6 months in Kuwait, and was allowed to go to Kuwait City twice for work. You will go stir crazy.

Fair point. Maybe they could redeploy the guards who were looking after Epstein, I guess they will be looking for work somewhere they can lie low.

Which part of "everyone" are you struggling with? There are always exceptions. I get 5 weeks so pretty standard. What (proper) job gets 8 weeks in 'Murica?

If you are a US citizen you are not automatically taxed if you are living on a non-us soil. If you are away for a calendar year you can go tax free.

Foreign Earned Income Exclusion Bona Fide Residence Test | Internal Revenue Service

Quote:
If you go to a foreign country to work on a particular construction job for a specified period of time, you ordinarily will not be regarded as a bona fide resident of that country even though you work there for 1 tax year or longer. The length of your stay and the nature of your job are only two of the factors to be considered in determining whether you meet the bona fide residence test.
if you are on a specific-length contract you probably won't be considered a bona fide resident. if your wife stays in the US it's probably even less likely. IANAA though

threshold of $400 (thats all!) and must file taxes on it
~330 days off of US soil
exemption of like $100k of your income when you file your taxes
