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

This is news, not \"political\" per se.

\"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!
