If you are a US citizen or resident alien then you have to report ALL your worldwide income. You may be allowed to either use the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion or the Foreign Tax Credit so you are not taxed twice.
A U.S. citizen or a U.S. resident alien who is physically present in a foreign country or countries for at least 330 full days during any period of 12 consecutive months can exclude income on form 2555.
If you cannot meet the exclusion then you can use the Foreign Tax Credit on form 1116.
