Re: US income tax on salary paid in the US but living in Switzerland

You DON'T avoid double taxation. The US wants you to pay taxes on all your US income as well as your Swiss income. Mind you, you have to earn about $200k before it is taxable, but you still have to declare it all, plus , they want to know now much money you have in your Swiss bank account.
Sure I'm aware of that very american peculiarity, but her total income for 2013 will not be above the threshold so that shouldn't be a problem. And she didn't have a swiss bank account either (paid in the US) so that's solved too.
My question is mainly about how to tell the IRS to subtract the swiss income tax from the US tax liability, all this after the original filing.
