If you are a US citizen or resident, you can claim a foreign income tax exclusion on the money you make in a foreign country to reduce your US taxes. The maximum exclusion is $103,900 for 2018.  If you pay taxes to the foreign government on the same amount of money you report on your US taxes, you can claim a foreign tax credit.

I apologized for the confusion.  I have edited my answer.  The rule applies to foreign income US citizens make while living outside the US.  Let me know if you need any further assistance.
