    No, if you are resident (spend 183 days or more) you are liable to pay tax there, regardless of which country the money is paid in to.

    One is outside, the other hasn't made a determination. Both avoid the German 183 day tax law. Beats sitting around waiting for the smelly stuff to hit the fan.
