Default Any US expat in UAE? Tax query

Hi,

I am a US citizen and want to gather some information on tax that Americans have to pay to uncle Sam while living and working abroad. Do we owe taxes on entire package (housing, schooling and other allowances) or just base and bonus? How housing allowance can be excluded and up to what amount?

Is there a software simulator you know which can provide general idea on how much I would owe if moved to UAE? Google wasn't much of help in this.

Thanks

There is a huge amount of info on this on another expat site. I do not think i can post the link here but if you google tax deductions for an American expat in Dubai it will bring up the forum and link

There is a long term US tax attorney in Dubai who has a blog which might help you.

PM me and I'll get the link to you.
