US Citizen earning foreign income

Hi all,

I am a US citizen with the fiscal residency in the US and, in addition to my US income, I earned foreign income by working for two months in an European country. I am pretty confused about what tax forms to fill out along with 1040, obviously I do not meet the requirements for the physical presence test. I will greatly appreciate if some of you with experience on this topic can give me some useful advice. Thank you in advance!

Hi @jazzie31168

I know that much that all US citizens will forcefully get taxed on worldwide income and this is the most downside of being an American, even if you live permanently abroad, still you are paying some tax to state.

Why not call the local tax office and asking them as they can give you the best answer?

Best of luck
