Taxation - H1B Employed to US firm and working from India for sometime

I am on H1B visa and employed to a US firm and get paid in US paycheck. Due to personal reasons , I might have to work from India for less than 6 months in US financial year between Jan 2022 - Dec 2022 . I plan to stay in chunks and will ensure I stay less than 6 months .

  1. My employer is fine and my immigration lawyer do not see any issues.

Question: from a taxation perspective … can anyone guide me if I am fine from both US and India perspective as I plan to stay less than 180 days in the US financial year…

If you pass the substantial presence test, you will be treated as US resident and will pay your taxes here in the US.
