A

If you are still a U.S. citizen or green card holder living abroad, you are still required to file a U.S. tax return.

When it comes to whether you must pay U.S. taxes, it depends. You may receive a foreign tax credit. Often you will owe no tax, but the rules are complex depending on the country where you live and the foreign tax credit limitation.

So, make sure to check with your expat tax advisor about which foreign taxes you can use to maximize your foreign tax credit.
