Be careful with Turbotax. It makes mistakes, especially for forms 2555 and 1116 (for entering foreign earned income and for calculating the foreign tax credit). I use it, and it’s a great guide for getting the forms filled out, but I’ve learned to check it carefully.
And don’t forget to fill out all the forms on your bank accounts, any business interests you have, and, starting next year, all your foreign assets.
No, the US government does not hate its expats. But it does assume we are all criminals.
