Short answer – it depends.
There are three main factors that determine whether you owe state taxes as an expat:
- The legitimacy of your domicile (legal residence) abroad (meaning, your place abroad should be legit and believable for the IRS)
- If you maintain or have an abode (permanent residence) in your former state
- If you are still making income in your state and thus owe state taxes as an expat
