I have already maxed out my Roth IRA.

Using what as a basis? To contribute to a Roth IRA you must have taxable compensation, and if you're excluding all of your earned income under the foreign earned income exclusion, you have none.

We've discussed this problem, and some approaches to it, on the Tax Strategies board.
