Re: FAQ: Expat's Guide to US Tax

Thanks for the FAQ on US Taxes. I wish I had that in the past to do my taxes.

I'm preparing to do my US taxes for 2017, but I have retired in September 2017 and have begun receiving my pension earnings from the UN (UNJSPF). I just discovered that I can't use the Foreign Earned Income exclusion and I'm beginning to panic because I may have to pay a lot of taxes on an already reduced income (which is also taxed in CH).

I began studying the IRS rules for my situation and it's really not easy. Unfortunately, your FAQ has very little information for taxes on retirement earnings. Do you have any suggestions/help? Thanks.
