What military pay can't be subtracted from income?

You can't subtract military income (certain combat pay) that you excluded from your federal adjusted gross income. So, if your military pay wasn't taxed by the IRS, there's nothing to subtract on your Illinois return.

You may NOT subtract the following:

  • Pay you received under the Voluntary Separation Incentive
  • Pay you received from the military as a civilian
  • Payments you made under the Ready Reserve Mobilization Income Insurance Program
  • Pay for duty as an officer in the Public Health Service
