Questions & Answers

What if I'm in the military and stationed away from home?

If you serve in the military and you were stationed outside of your home state during 2018, you can likely file as a full-year resident of your home state.

If your only income was from military wages, you don't need to file an income tax return for the state you were stationed in.

If you did earn income other than military wages in the state you were stationed in, you'll need to file a nonresident tax return with that state to report the nonmilitary income (exception: military spouses).

Military Spouses
If you were a military spouse, you (and your spouse, if filing jointly) don't need to file a nonresident return for the state you were stationed in if the nonmilitary spouse was only in the nonresident state solely due to the military orders of his or her spouse.
