HelloCustomer

Form 2555 (PDF) can be used to claim the foreign earned income exclusion. It must be used to claim the foreign housing exclusion or deduction. In some circumstances you can use Form 2555-EZ (PDF) to claim the foreign earned income exclusion.

Please refer to the following IRS discussion on how to claim this credit.
