We have to file taxes on the lump-sum refund

Wait, we do? Is it not inherently part of the "foreign earned income" exclusion?

Long dead thread, but I have the same question, as it's getting to tax time. Do I add it in with the foreign earned income exclusion? Do I not put it on the form at all? I'm honestly puzzled. I would assume it would fall under the exclusion...

I think it's excluded, I'm pretty sure it would have been mentioned at some point if we needed to pay tax.
