Income taxes in Ecuador?

I am having a heck of a time finding accurate information on income taxes in Ecuador. I’ve literally found opposite information, much of it from tax agencies and “relocation” specialists.

If a foreigner moves to Ecuador and earns foreign income (let’s say from an online job in the US), do they need to pay Ecuadorian income taxes if they have a temporary or permanent Ecuadorian resident visa?

It’s so confusing because many sources say no and others say if you live in Ecuador over 6 months you have to pay income tax on any earned income whether it is earned in Ecuador or outside of Ecuador.
