My questions:1. Can you both claim the deduction even if you are filing jointly?Yes.2. If you are filing jointly and you both meet the residence requirements, but one spouse is not working, can you still claim the full $160,000 deduction against the one foreign income that you have? No. The nonworking spouse is still limited to the lesser of (1) $80,000 or (2) foreign earned income minus foreign housing exclusion. It seems to me that a nonworking spouse has $0 of foreign earned income.Ira
