Re: US tax returns

You can qualify for FEIE retroactively. Apply for an extension to file. It's all in the IRS guidance notes for overseas filers.

If your pay exceeds FEIE ($100,800 in 2015) you get tax credit for the rest, also for tax on unearned (non-wage) income.

No credit for Swiss wealth tax -- which is why federal + cantonal + commune income tax may be less than US federal.

TurboTax is great.
