Which countries have reciprocal treaties with the USA? Specifically does Lebanon have a reciprocal tax treaty for government employees?

The Republic of Lebanon does not have a treaty with the US. Rather, the Vienna Convention on Consulate Relations established reciprocal relations with foreign countries that do not tax US Consulate employees. So, if Lebanon does not tax US Consulate employees stationed in Lebanon, then its likely under the Vienna Convention (i believe 1991) that Lebanese Consulate employees in the US will not be taxed federally. I am not sure about state income tax though?

Lebanon does not have a treaty with the US and there is not certificate of exemption with the US. I agree with LS5777, check the Vienna Convention which applies to all countries even those that dont have treaties with the US.

Also try contacting the Lebanese Embassy in Washington for details.

I had the same issue with the Lebanese embassy last year. I know that as of last year the Lebanese embassy in Washington had not applied for or obtain confirmation of a reciprocal agreement with the US Department of State and therefore A-2 Visa holders working for the Lebanese Embassy or Lebanese Consulate have to file tax returns and pay US taxes. Once the Lebanese Embassy receives confirmation of reciprocity then its A-2 employees will not need to file taxes in the US

is there an obligation to pay federal taxes only? What about state taxes or city taxes? Same thing or are state rules different?

States follow the feds so if there is a federal tax then states must also change an income tax.
