Depends. The full amounts for single taxpayers are-

2015 Tax Year

$100,800

2014 Tax Year

$99,200

2013 Tax Year

$97,600

2012 Tax Year

$95,100

2011 Tax Year

$92,900

2010 Tax Year

$91,500

2009 Tax Year

$91,400

You can double these numbers if your spouse also earns foreign income. There are other things to consider too such as foreign housing exclusion or deduction, and high-cost cities allowances.
