Do I file a State Return from working in a foreign country?

Here is my situation. I am a self-employed contractor working and living fulltime in a foreign country. I do all my business in this country. But....I get paid from a company in the states. And that is technically my home state, I just don't live there. Do I have to file a tax return for the state the company is in?

Yes, If you are a US Citizen and you have received a 1099 or W-2 reporting the income you must report worldwide income regardless of where you live.
