I'm a U.S. citizen, I've been working overseas for quite a while, and I've filed tax returns with the IRS every year for quite a while, but the IRS hasn't taxed me in years.
Of course you didn't get taxed, you don't make enough money

Using XE.com's exchange rate, I get US$41,917 for legislators, government administrators, business executives and managers, and US$29,203 for professionals.
You say U. S. citizens are taxed, but in order to be taxed by the IRS here, I'd have to make more than twice what an average Taiwan legislator, government administrator, business executive or manager made, and more than three times what an average Taiwan professional made.
I can only conclude that you set the bar high for U. S. citizenship.
