Welcome to the Forum.

Great questions and probably no easy answers. As a minimum, I think you need to declare your tax home as the residence in the Philippines. I would engage a CPA back home to validate how to best avoid the penalties.

Here is some reading that may or may not answer your questions;

ACA – Obamacare’s Effects on American Expats Living Abroad | Surviving Yucatan


I have been working abroad for the last seven years and the first year is always tough getting the tax year aligned with the 330 day requirement (which is why I am referring you to find a CPA that could explain it better).

Most likely nothing will be published until Feb 1 (after the W2 publishing deadline). That has been my experience with using TurboTax.
