Default Moved to the UK mid-year

Hi everyone,

Wife and I moved to the UK on 1st of September 2018. We were in the US for 3 years under L1/L2 visas. I filed all previous years taxes via TurboTax myself. I've started filing this year taxes and according to TurboTax my UK income (from the date I moved till end of tax year) is also taxable in the US even though taxes were already paid in the UK.
Am I missing something? Is it recommend to seek CPA assistance in such cases?

Tried to search on the forum but did not find similar situation.

Thanks!

I was actually looking for a help from people who dealt with such thing before to understand whether I simply missing a step in Turbotax or whether this is much more complex so I should seek CPAs help right away.

Your UK income may be subject to taxation. I havent used Turbo tax in years, but i remember that there is a foreign income and foreign takes paid section where you can enter this information. I'm not sure if L1/L2 visas have to report world wide income...you should look into that. I know that Green Card holders and citizens do.
