Am I required to pay income taxes in Thailand when holding a Thai Elite Visa?

I am interested in spending some of my time in Thailand every year with the Thai Elite Visa, however, I am wondering if this would oblige me to pay income tax in the country?

Thai Elite Visa holders do not need to pay income taxes if the income comes from abroad; the Thai Elite visa comes under the same category as special tourist visas. There are circumstances where a Thai Elite Visa holder may wish to pay income tax in Thailand voluntarily; however, this will not entitle you to receive social security benefits like government health insurance.
