Overseas tax exemption?
Asked by: Jesica Hogan
I am a contractor working on a US. Military base overseas. I have been here since July 2012 and my contract will end in March 2013. I did not change my W-4 due to knowin the contract would not be long enough to qualify for the overseas tax break. But now my plan is to go work in Australia or Germany from March 2013 to July 2013 in order to be out of the states for more than 330 days within a 365 day period. My question is; if I do this do I qualify for the overseas tax break (the one that exempts me from federal taxes up to the first $ 93,000 or so) and be able to ask for the money back when filing my 2013 tax return, or does the 330 days all have to be within the same fiscal year?
