Soldiers serving in a designated combat zone are eligible to exempt military pay from their taxable income. Soldiers who served in the Sinai Peninsula during any time after June 9, 2015, can now obtain a corrected W-2 and file an amended return with the IRS. Active Component Soldiers who were assigned temporary change of station (TCS) or temporary duty (TDY) during any period from June 2015 through December 31, 2016, should submit a copy of their TDY/mobilized orders and a completed travel voucher (DD Form 1351-2 or DTS Voucher) to the finance office for review. For information on how to file an amended income tax return, contact your local tax center or visit the IRS website.
