They must have it fixed in a way that he doesn't spend the 6 months here because it simply doesn't make sense to pay so much extra taxes.
Most of the countries have similar rule. Maybe Filppula doesn't care about such things. He gets to play at home. Way better than scratching... in the US. If he cared so much about the money he would be playing in Russia.
