How to I reflect Income Earned Abroad?

To enter your income earned abroad follow these steps:

How to Enter Foreign Income

• Go to Federal Taxes

• Select Wages & Income

• Click I'll choose what I work on

• Scroll down the page to the last section Less Common Income and select Show More

• Select Start to the right of Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion

• Go through this section and enter the income that you earned abroad

• Please note: if you received a W-2, it should be flagged as foreign income in the follow-up questions of the W-2 entry.  You need to check the box indicating that you worked outside the U.S.
