I have entered my foreign income and the taxes I paid, but each time I complete the very long form to claim this credit, my deduction always shows up as zero. I know that this is a glitch with Turbo Tax, because I have read the other threads. I need to know if there is a solution yet, or if I can speak to an actual human about it without paying another $100.
perhaps one of us SUs can help you with your problem ---- give some details of the situation e.g. what kind of foreign income ( interest / dividend, capital gain, earned income or what ), which country, your filing status, your immigration status ( US citizen/Resident / Resident for tax purposes ) . etc. etc. what is TurboTax doing correctly etc.
I am having the same issue. I have filled out the form multiple times. I live in Germany and it continues to show 0 tax credit. I could use your help!
I should not have to pay to get help on a function which is not working correctly.
Also do not understand as to why you are looking for foreign tax credit if (a) US citizen/Resident living in Germany, (b) earning and paying taxes to GDR -- why are you not able to exclude foreign earned income. Please tell me more I am assuming that you are working on your 2018 US Federal tax return--- yes?
