Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
I'm a little confused...are you speaking about the 2013 taxes or the 2012 taxes? If 2013 he would be there the entire year if he didn't come back so you would use 1/1/13-12/31/13 as the dates.
For 2012 he was there from 5/5/12-12/31/12
I entered 5/5/2012-5/5/2013 as the physical presence period on the taxpayer's 2012 Form 2555 & was therefore only able to deduct .658% (241days/365 days) of the maximum foreign income exclusion. I just wanted to confirm whether I could offset 100% of the maximum foreign income exclusion of 95,100 in 2013.
If you were in the UAE during 2013 for the entire year, then yes
You can count the entire exclusion
Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
