You will still need to file taxes as a us citizen however, because you are eligible for US benefits. Make sure to keep track of your income and then at tax time you will need to state the income you make out of the country, and then that money will be taxed accordingly.

Rely on your employer to prepare you for life in Jamaica with regard to local laws, culture, traditions, customs as well as the particulars of your job responsibilities. An employer who places employees internationally has an HR representative who handles all the particulars.
