Is maximum foreign tax exclusion of income 95,100 for joint filers or 190,200 (95,100 for both husband & wife)?

MyVirtualCPA :

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.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

The exclusion is per qualifying person...so each person can exclude up to the full amount

MyVirtualCPA :

Here is a link from the IRS. It is a bit outdated, because it lists 2008 exclusion amounts but it does say where married couples can each claim the exclusion
