I have no idea how you earn tax free money legally
In USA, there was a program (A1B visas, perhaps?) that allowed a legal form of slavery that skirted taxes.

Originally, at least, a foreign worker could get a job via an A1B visa if no US citizen could be found to fill the position. The solution was to advertise a job with specification that perhaps only a few people in the world could meet - and then, with such specialization - and a relatively crappy salary (to make sure no US citizen with the experience would consider the job). In exchange, the company got a cheap employee who could not change jobs for (at least) three years.

So the company got cheap labor, US employees were cheated out of jobs by what amounted to an imported indentured servant.

The above went on in Chemistry - so it's a good guess it went on all over the tech world
