No! there is no difference the the tax rates based on residence or location. However there is two provisions for US Taxpayers to actually pay less in taxes when living and working abroad. One is the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion and the other is the Foreign tax credit. These each require the proper forms to be filled out and the Exclusion and Credit taken appropriately. They are not automatic in any stretch of the imagination.

What that post did NOT do was to focus on HOW the Internal Revenue Code applies to U.S. citizens who do NOT live in the United States.
