Some tax deductions and tax credits for businesses and individuals are unique to the United States tax code.

The Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, for example, allows expats to avoid paying US taxes on income earned in the country where they live and work.

New under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the Qualified Business Income deduction for corporations that earn income from customers outside the US.
