I'm a dual-citizen (French/American). The US taxes you on your worldwide income for as long as you are a citizen. If you are not a US resident, I believe up to about $75k or $80k of foreign income can be exempted from taxes in general. There are tax specific tax treaties between the US and other countries to avoid some excessive double taxation for dual citizens. The IRS will have some information about it, as well as the embassy for the other country. That's where I would go first in your case. Contacting a specialized tax attorney before taking any action would probably be wise.
