U.S. tax exclusions


Form 2555

U.S. taxpayers living and working abroad are eligible for an exclusion of their foreign earned income up to the prescribed amount (for 2017 this amount is $102,100) and an exclusion based on their foreign housing expenses. Use this form to figure the foreign earned income (the income earned in the Netherlands through active duty) which is allowed to be excluded and your maximum exclusion amount. Note that the exclusion is not allowed against i.e., investment income, social security benefits, and pension or severance payments.
