So, I've been here half a year, and had been told before that the US wouldn't be taxing me for what I make here- I can file an extension and then, once I qualify for the physical presence test I get the foreign earned income waiver. Now, I know that I wouldn't be able to claim $90,000 which is the top amount for one year, but I thought that it would just be maybe I would be able to claim whatever percent of the year times that amount. Now the tax software people are claiming that I can only exclude the percent of the year times the money I make! And that I have to pay tax on the rest! But I've already paid taxes here! And I am getting nowhere with the IRS, they seem to say the same thing, but all they will tell me is to work it out on paper, and that seems to indicate I am right. Any ideas?
