General tax resource for those covered by the FEIE
« on: February 05, 2018, 05:55:19 AM »
Hey man, thanks for the pdf on harvesting capital gains. 100% of my income is excluded from federal income tax by the FEIE. Do you know a good comprehensiive resource on how that impacts the capital gain harvesting and Roth IRA conversion scenarios you have mastered?

Thank you for sharing these skills with your readers.

I'm going to review this in April +/-. I haven't found a great resource and have instead pieced it together bit by bit.

Even thought the foreign earned income is excluded from taxes, you pay tax on all US income as if the FEIE didn't exist. You can work through how much to convert or harvest by doing your tax analysis without the FEIE.
