i tried finding the answer but couldn’t so I apologize if this has been answered before.

I’m active duty military stationed in japan.
My wife is a contractor.

Do I report her 1099-misc and then also enter in the foreign earned income?

When I filled out my tax forms the turbo tax cpa reviewed it and said I was good to only fill out the Foreign earned income credit form.

I think this has caused me to underreport and I’ll probably have to amend when the form is available.

So once again do I need to report her 1099-misc under self employment and the. Also fill out the foreign earned income exclusion?

It is a mystery as to why the turbo tax cpa excluded the 1099-Misc. At this point, I think your best course is to contact Turbotax again and confirm with them that it is to be excluded or have them determine that the advice given was in error. Then you can go from there.
