Filing taxes as an expat

From reading the forums, I understand that it is possible to use TurboTax Deluxe to file for taxes as an expat. I have started the filing process for 2016 and can't seem to find any of those features. In my situation, I am residing abroad and work for a non US company with a non US spouse. Any information on this would be helpful, thanks!

Filing taxes as an expat

Yes, you can use Deluxe for expat- friendly forms. These include Form 2555 (Foreign Earned Income) and Form 1116 (Foreign Tax Credit). There is otherwise no special "expat" type of return or "expat" category. You go to the relevant sections depending on the type of income you have (stocks in stocks, interest as interest, etc). 

To report your non-US earned income, go here:

  • Federal Taxes
  • Less Common Income
  • Foreign Earned Income and Exclusion
Answer the questions carefully, and consider your options so far as opting to exclude foreign earnings (if that option is available)

There are tax forms relating to expatriating, which is not common and not a Turbo Tax friendly tax issue. Expatriating is not likely what you are looking for, tax-wise:
