Essentially, the FEIE is Form 2555 on a US tax return. It allows any qualifying and taxpaying American expat to exclude around 100k of foreign earned income from being taxed from the IRS tax authorities. The income must be earned (i.e. salary or self-employment) while you were physically working outside of the US.
