All American citizens and green card holders are required to file a federal US tax return, reporting their worldwide income, wherever in the world they live.
Filing US taxes from overseas is typically more complex than filing from the US, as expats also have to identify and claim the most beneficial IRS exemptions for their situation to avoid paying US taxes, and, in many cases, file a Foreign Bank Account Report (FBAR) to report any foreign bank and investment accounts they may have, too. Foreign businesses should also be reported, while some states require expats to continue filing state taxes, depending on the state and again depending on each expat’s circumstances.
