From my POV there are general aspects regarding paying taxes in islam which apply to non-islamic countries as well - see here for a very good explanation. Basically as long as there is no direct sin involved a muslim is obliged to follow the laws/rules of the country he is living in and on the other hand the ruler must not take taxes by force.
Other aspects to take into consideration can be found here - it states that to ward off injustice it is allowed to lie and if a country is at war with muslim it is haram to pay taxes to that country. Although I would be very cautious on applying this without a real fatwa regarding you specific case...
