I agree with you but this is my first time using software last year for e filling , so I am confused I had earn credit for foreign income
Ok if are you familiar with turbo tax ?
I followed all the steps right I am sure and I got credit when I went to less common income then to foreign earned income and exclusion and I followed the steps make money out side US ? answered Yes , then I choose statement from my foreign employment , then I entered the money amount , does money comes from military or Us goverment sources abroad or Cuba I answered no , wages adjusment I left it blank because there us not , also for rest expenses like home , car, I left it blank , amount in cash I left it blank , then do you to exclude your foreign income I choose yes , working living outdide USA I answered no, the answer was you don't qualify ,then do you want to delelt form 2555 I answered no , then on the screen around 5000$ so what is the mistake I put all information accurate !! and this was for 2012 return and I got the money .
the problem I had talk with tax prepar expert and he told me that you shouldnot get credit for such foriegn income every thing with the turbo tax soft was smooth and ok , that the reason that I am confused .
