my client, a US citizen, worked in iraq for 100 days [minus 10 days vacation in US] in 2005 and all of 2006 [minus 20 days vacation in US & 10 days vacation in canada]. can he exclude 82400 in 2006 and a prorated portion of the max exclusion in 2005?

JD, assuming he has or will be outside of the U.S. for 330 days out of any consecutive 12 months, he would qualify under the physical presence test for the foreign earned income exclusion for 2005. Using your facts, the exclusion will be $21,818 ($80,000 X 90/330). -- Larry Hess, CPA, Albuquerque, NM - Talk to me
