Don't worry Jan, they are pretty much clueless when it comes to earnings from the internet in most countries overseas.

I live in Belgium and tried to declare taxes. It took me 4 letters before they understood why I was paying taxes for.
They even told me that if I wouldn't have mentionned it, they would never have found out about it.

The fact is, in most countries, the fisc can't just monitor your bank account. They need a good reason for it (fe: fraud, money laundring,..). The only way they could find out about your earnings is through the IRS, but there doesn't seem to be much communication between the IRs and foreign tax offices..
