Why did my taxes go UP after I identified my self employment income as being foreign-derived earned income which is excludable?

You may be able to exclude the SE income from federal taxes but you will still owe SE taxes on the profits.

And by removing the income you may have lost some or all of the credits that was paying off the SE taxes ... I suggest you look at the form 1040 before and after that change to see exactly what actually happened.
