I currently live in Italy but expect to move to the U.S. in September to start a new job; however, I would keep my apartment in Italy till the end of the year.
Is it possible to claim Bona Fide Residence for the period January-August? According to https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/foreign-earned-income-exclusion-bona-fide-residence-test,
"You meet the bona fide residence test if you are a bona fide resident of a foreign country or countries for an uninterrupted period that includes an entire tax year."
It seems to me, however, that it must be possible to avoid double taxation for part of a tax year.
