sxk is on a distinguished road
Default 485 and living in Canada

I am currently using my EAD and working for a company remotely from my house. I also have a Permanent Resident Status in Canada. I can work remotely from Canada and my company will not have any objections to it.

Since I am on 485/EAD can I work for a US company and be on their pay roll and live in Canada? What are the ramifications?

Please advise!

Once you are not in US It does not matter. But as for as EAD or H1 It does not matter. Same rules apply as any other country. You have to present in US to apply and get approval for AP.

Taxes issues may be different.

You may have to pay income taxes at both the places.

In order to be able to finally adjust status when your priority date become current you must either maintain a continuously valid advance parole or H-1 visa. Alternatively, you could file an I-824 requesting that your approved I-140 be transferred to the National Visa Center so that when your priority date becomes current you can apply at the US Consul in Canada for your immigrant visa.
