@eathandrail , so assuming that this is foreign earned income ( i.e. wages for a local entity or self-employment income ), you do not need a W-2. Just use the details from your income statement -- tell TurboTax that this is foreign earned income ( you do not enter this under "Wages" or" W-2 " -- under personal income tab, select I" I will work on ...." this will then show you a new screen with all the income categories-- near the bottom under "other miscellaneous income... " you will find "foreign earned income and exclusions" ). TurboTax will then guide you through the process. If you need more help, please feel welcome
@eathandrail based on the question that you see answer "a statement" -- that should work.
Is this what you meant ?
you can answer --I will be for a little while and so can respond rtight away.
@eathandrail once you enter the foreign earned income then TurboTax will walk you through the next bit to see if you qualify to exclude this ( or how much of it ) form US taxes -- form 2555. General rule is you need to meet Physical Presence test ( i.e. in a test period of 12 months you must have been abroad in foreign country or countries for at least 330 days). That is how you would avoid double taxation
