Re: Do I need to fill in Tax forms for the US?

He means that your answer is probably in the Free Beer thread...Stick around a while and you will figure it out...

As I understand it, if you are a US citizen or Green Card holder, you will have to file your US taxes even if you have not earned anything and live outside of the country. The US taxes it citizens wherever they might live.
You will have a personal exemption of around 90K US$. If you search the forum, you should find several threads with helpful information.

Here is a link that another forum member posted a while back that should answer most questions.

and here is a link to a thread with some good info:
