All Americans are required to file US taxes, including those based or residing abroad, if they meet IRS minimum annual income requirements. For individuals these are:
$12,550 (for tax year 2021)
$500 of self-employment/freelance income
$5 for Americans married filing separately to a non-American taxpayer
It doesn't matter whether Americans abroad also file foreign taxes, they still have to file an annual US federal return (and some might have to file state taxes in the state where they last lived too, depending on the rules in the particular state).
Americans also often have to report any foreign registered business interests, financial accounts and assets, too.
