Do I owe taxes in general as an expat to the US?

Do expat pay taxes? In most cases, you will not owe tax to the US. Many EU countries have a tax treaty with the United States, which allows you to take advantage of tax credits and avoid double taxation.

There are certain instances (e.g. real estate ownership) where there could be a US tax owed and that would depend on certain types of income that might not be taxed in the EU but then would be taxed in the United States without a foreign tax credit available. This can be federal tax and/or state tax.
