I told you there is no income tax meaning that when u get ur salary there is no tax on that
but like the products u are buying from supermarkets an shops an stuff they got an automatic 5% tax on it.

Oracleson,

As a US citizen you are liable to pay tax to the IRS if your annual income exceeds a certain amount, no matter where you live in the world... whether or not you choose to submit your returns to the IRS depends on whether or not you want to play games with them (generally speaking not a good idea!!).

If you want professional advice on this I suggest you call Craig on 04 3369880. He is General Manager of a finacial services company and well qualified to help in this type of matter.
