I'm doing my daughters taxes and havbe a question.She only has interest to

declae as the FEIE takes care of her dutch salary.If after line 41 which has the

total in parenthesis which I assume denote a - do I leave a 0 in block 42 as I

don't have anything to subtract from it.

When you put an amount in parenthesis does that mean the amount is

considered tor be minus?

Thanks for the help.

Amounts in parens are negative. (It's an old accounting convention.)

If you've already taken her exemption, then either enter -0- in line 42, or just leave it blank. (It says to multiple the number of boxes checked on line 6 by the personal exemption amount. Anything times 0 is 0.)

Starting with line 43, they say specifically to enter -0- if the result is less than 0.

Sounds like you're almost done!
Cheers,
Bev
