I was curious about a hypothetical situation. Let's say I'm a US citizen, who lives abroad, and works remotely for a company based in the US. Would I qualify for the $100k Foreign Earned Income Exclusion tax credit? If I made 100k or less in a tax year, does that effectively mean I owe nothing to the US for that year?
Also, is there a difference of whether I am paid via direct deposit into my US bank account, or via wire transfers into my foreign account?
(For the sake of example, let's say I am an official resident of a state without income taxes)
