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
