I am not a U.S. citizen. I had to flee my own country due to religious
and political reasons. I live in the USA to be safe from execution and
close to somebody I love.

I have no social security number. I asked the IRS to assign me a tax
pin number, which they refused. They want a statement from the Mexican
government as due to my ID. But I am from Europe.

I make money via the Internet. I have no employer. My customers are
internationally. I will pay taxes (even with the refusal of the IRS to
assign a tax number for me) for money made in the USA from USA
customers. But what about my income from other countries as Israel,
Turkey, UK and China?

I can't ask my European government for any papers to satisfy the IRS.
If they would not where I am, they would chop my head off.

Please let me know your ideas. I want to do what is right.

You have to report your world-wide income. You can use the Foreign-
Income Exclusion but be careful that it does not affect your credits.
In some cases, taking the Foreign Tax Credit is better.

Sounds more like a race between the IRS and the INS to catch this person to
me. Maybe one will figure this guys IP address via gmail and get him.
