Click  here  to see a chart illustrating how to count days to see if you qualify for the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion using the physical presence test.  The exclusion does NOT require that you be out of the U.S. for 365 days during the year.  It requires that you test each day to determine if that day is in a 12 month period that qualifies.  Thus, overlapping periods can result in more qualified days.  See the link at the left for more info.  Also see my article  Expat Tax - Counting the Days to Save Taxes With Form 2555
