How can I get my wife's W-2 income earned while abroad reflected on form 2555?

Please make sure that after entering your wife's W-2 that you put a checkmark by "Worked outside the U.S. - I worked outside the U.S. for an employer that wasn't the U.S. government or its agencies." at the "Do any of these uncommon situations apply to this W-2?" screen.

Then follow these steps to possibly qualify for the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion:

  1. Login to your TurboTax Account 
  2. Click "Take Me To My Return"
  3. Click "Federal" from the left side of your screen
  4. Scroll down to “Less Common Income” and click "Show more" 
  5. Scroll down to “Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion” and click “Start
  6. TurboTax will walk you through the questions.
