Re: FAQ: Expat's Guide to US Tax

After doing some research I think I do not need to file an FBAR bc I've only just recently opened a bank account abroad and I doubt that it will ever contain more than $10K at any point in time.

That's the gist, but be aware that there might be some complications. For instance, time spent working in the US, such as business trips while resident abroad, could reduce the FEIE. Also be aware that investment income might be treated differently in CH and in the US.

OH, and whatever you do - don't forget your FBAR!
