http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96287,00.html You might want to read the information at the IRS link above & see if it doesn't answer your question. If not, you can do more research on that site.

thank you so much for your response. I visited the site. It seems very complicated to apply one. Just wondering, what happen if you don't pay tax in the US?
