Questions & Answers

Do I need to report my wages to the state where I'm stationed?

If you earned wages from a nonmilitary job in the state where you're stationed, you need to file a nonresident state tax return with that state and report the wages from your nonmilitary job. Don't include any military wages you earned while you were stationed there. You also need to file a resident state tax return with your home state to report your military wages.

If you only earned military wages in the state where you're stationed, you don't need to file a return with that state. You only need to file a resident state tax return with your home state to report your military wages.
