Overwatering is the usual reason for yellowing leaves. The soil should be consistently moist but not soggy wet. You can also try a dose of Ironite to help the leaves green up. Don't feed at this point - your tree is under stress and feeding will just stress it more. Citrus needs lots of sunshine so if it's not getting all day sun, you may want to move it. Hope this combination of things fixes the problem!
