  • Yes and yes. Only if they are deployed do they not pay taxes.

  • "As a U.S. citizen with income from sources outside the United States (foreign income), you must report that income on your tax return unless it is exempt by U.S. law. This is true whether you reside inside or outside the United States and whether or not you receive a Form W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement) or 1099-R statement from the foreign employer. This applies to earned income (such as wages and tips) as well as unearned income (such as capital gains, dividends, interest, pensions, rents, and royalties). "

  • yes. And I paid taxes living on a miltary base not being military when we lived overseas. : ) Though some US states makes the military member tax free for state taxes.

  • Yes---the military personnel I know...and my DH...always pay taxes. It is INCOME . Anyone who earns, pays.

  • The only time you don't is when you are deployed to a war zone.
