You can use Turbo Tax to prepare your US return, assuming you are a US citizen or permanent resident who is living abroad. Foreign Earned Income is handled by every version of Turbo Tax starting with Deluxe.

Start that process here:

  • Federal Taxes
  • Wages and Income
  • Less Common Income
  • Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion

If you have questions along the way, you can post specific questions here in the Answer Exchange or contact phone support (once you've upgraded to Deluxe)

As far as a Japanese return(?), no, Turbo Tax cannot do that. No common US tax prep company offers international tax return filings. Are you living in Japan for work? As your US-based colleagues or your boss for their advice on Japanese filings.

I do not need to file taxes for Japan, just federal and state. The forms I am required to submit are 8822, 4868, Foreign Earned Income Statement, 2555-EZ, 8965, and 1040. If I pay for deluxe service will these all be included??

1040, 8965, 4868 all very common and avail in all editions. Foreign income/ 2555 avail in Deluxe and up.
8822 is just a change of address. You can also change your address by filing a return. You don't file that form with a tax return.
You are covered by Deluxe.

See forms list under this page-
