Form 2555

Does deducting abroad income via Form 2555 preclude client from Form 8880 credit?

No but eligible will be impacted if the AGI adjusted for §911 puts your client over the threshold.

I apologize for my ignorance, how do I find Section 911 in irs.gov? Clients' MFJ line 8b is $36,424, and there are no other deductions except Form 2555, yet Form 8880 is denying credit because of AGI being over the $64K limit.

F.2555 is for exclusions allowed under §911.  My response was based on §25B(e).

It's disallowed because his AGI, including FEIE, is over the threshold.
