The first 92,900 USD of EARNED income (e.g., wages) can be excluded from your US income tax return. Any additional income will be taxed at the rates which would have applied had no exclusion been granted. You will be taxed in Singapore only on income earned in Singapore. So you could end up with double taxation as there is no personal income tax treaty with Singapore.
