What types of income aren't taxed if my nonmilitary spouse is in Rhode Island only because of military orders?
The following types of income for a military member's spouse are NOT taxed by Rhode Island:
- Income from services performed in Rhode Island (for example, doctors, lawyers, accountants, carpenters, painters, hairdressers, piano teachers, etc.)
- Self-employment income (if the spouse is engaged in a personal service business that doesn't make, buy, or sell goods to produce income)
You shouldn't enter any of these types of income for the nonmilitary spouse in the Rhode Island amount column.
If your nonmilitary spouse earned any other type of income in Rhode Island, he or she should include that income in Rhode Island amount column.
