Federal Income Tax, Social Security and Medicare State Income & Other Taxes
Each state’s tax laws vary. Please consult your state tax authority or a professional tax advisor.
If you are a U. S. citizen working for the US Government, and you are stationed abroad, your income tax filing requirements are generally the same as those for citizens and residents living in the United States. You are taxed on your worldwide income (“pay”), even though you live and work abroad. However, you may receive certain allowances and have certain expenses that you generally do not have while living in the United States, which might not be taxed.
