Tax rates for the military are the same as for non-military. Reserves are also the same as non-military. Combat pay however is non-taxable. So if you are in a war zone you are not going to pay tax on the income while you're in that war zone. Your W2 will show your regular pay and your combat pay. The only time combat pay is counted is when we're trying to qualify you for earned income credit and then we will use the combat pay but that's strictly non-taxable to you. Thank you.
