You have to file the Statement of Use only once and only if you applied for your US trademark on an intent-to-use basis.

Once your application successfully passes through the preliminary assessment and the opposition window, the USPTO will send you the Notice of Allowance requesting you to file the Statement of Use within the next six months. You can ask for a six-month extension to this deadline for a total of five times; however, each extension request is subject to a fee and prolongs the registration process.
