Example: Barry, an Oregon resident, enlisted in the Army in 2010. From January to August 2013, he was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington and he earned $24,000 in military pay. From August through December, he was a recruiter in Oregon and earned $12,000. He can subtract the $24,000 earned outside Oregon and $6,000 of the income earned in Oregon.
