The US tax system is unusual, as it taxes based on citizenship. All American citizens in Libya, as well as green card holders, who earned over $12,550 in 2021 (in total, globally, in any currencies), or just $400 of self-employment income, or just $5 of any income if they are married to a foreigner but file separately are required to file a US federal tax return reporting their worldwide income.
Therefore filling US Tax return can quickly becoming a nightmare, with US living in Libya having often to file two tax returns, one to the IRS and another in the country where they live, and facing huge fines if the requirements are not completed on time.
