2019 tax year E-filing: Multiple Forms 2555

Highlighted

According to PTO (from critical diagnostics): e-File returns can only have one 2555 or 2555EZ per taxpayer and/or Spouse. If more than the allowed number of form 2555 are included with the return it MUST be paper filed. Multiple W-2's from the same employer paid to the same taxpayer in the same qualified period may be included on a single form 2555 and e-filed.


Can TP combined 2 foreign earned incomes from 2 different employers (but the same foreign country) into a single Form 2555? TP got a new employment in 2019. Under this combination, total foreign earned income exclusion, total income, AGI, tax liability remain the same.


Thanks for your time and comment.

Yes. All taxpayer's foreign earned income goes on one 2555. All spouse's goes on their one 2555.

@sjrcpa Thanks!

Is it ok for TP to combine 2 foreign earned incomes from 2 different employers (but the same foreign country) into a single Form 2555? TP got a new employment in 2019. Under this combination, total foreign earned income exclusion, total income, AGI, tax liability remain the same.
