I live abroad, do I have to file a US tax return?

Most US citizens (including dual citizens and Green Card holders) living abroad do have to file a US federal tax return. This article will help you work out if you need to file.

You’ll need to file a 2021 US tax return when your annual worldwide income exceeds any of these thresholds:

  • If you’re single with income over US$12,550
  • If you’re married to an American or a Green Card holder with joint income over US$25,100
  • If you’re married to a non-American and your own total income is over US$5 (that’s not a typo). 
  • If you’re Head of Household (Married or Divorced with US dependents) with total income over US$18,800
  • If you’re self-employed or have any freelance income during the year over US$400

Affordable, non-automated tax returns

Before we started our online service, we asked over 1,000 Americans living abroad what they wanted from an online tax service.
