The new tax bill currently going through the Senate and House contains a provision to repeal the foreign earned income tax exclusion.

If moderators feel this topic is too political, they should, of course, remove it. I am not endorsing or disagreeing with any particular government, just trying to alert fellow Americans abroad of a new tax law that could potentially affect them.



If any fellow ProZians have additional info on this topic, I would love to hear from them.



Regards,

Sara

\"Mr. Thomas and Mr. Grassley dropped the provision in the Senate bill that would have eliminated a tax exemption that Americans living abroad are now entitled to.\"



...so it looks like the nasty provision has been dropped from the bill. Hooray!
