Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.United States citizens and resident aliens are taxed on their worldwide income, whether the person lives inside or outside of the United States. However, qualifying U.S. citizens and resident aliens who live and work abroad may be able to exclude from their income all or part of their foreign salary or wages, or amounts received as compensation for their personal services. In addition, they may also qualify to exclude or deduct certain foreign housing costs. The annual exclusion amount for 2015 is $100,800.The following links contain excellent information which you will find helpful:https://www.irs.gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Foreign-Earned-Income-ExclusionPlease let me know if you require further information or clarification.Thank you and best regards,Barb
