Currently residing overseas - will the online form work if I don't have W2 information?

I need to understand if I can use Turbo tax even if I don't expect to get a W2 form this year (as I'm temporarily working overseas). Please advise.

Yes, you can use TurboTax to file even without a Form W-2.  It is common, of course, that foreign employers do not issue U.S. tax forms even to U.S. citizens. 

 

In the TurboTax program, you will report the income under the "Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion" section of the program.  You will find this under the heading Less Common Income or by typing foreign income into the search tool and clicking on the Jump to link that appears in the search results.
