Supporting Our TroopsMilitary Personnel Income Tax Information – Special Provisions

Death Related to Duty
When a member of the US Armed Forces dies while on active duty in a combat zone or qualified hazardous duty area or as a result of wounds, disease, or injury received there, no Income Tax is due for the year the death occurred, or for any earlier years served in the zone or area.

Prisoner of War/Missing in Action (POW/MIA)
If, while serving in a combat zone or qualified hazardous duty area, a member of the U.S. Armed Forces becomes a prisoner of war or is officially declared to be "missing in action," that person is deemed to be serving in the combat zone or qualified hazardous duty area as long as he or she retains that status for military purposes.
