    Rescent rule changes exempts combat pay from federal income taxes, check with your tax specialist for full details is this applies to you.

    Back in the '90s, the Gulf was a tax free zone. Anybody stationed out there for any period of time did not have to pay federal or state income tax for that month. I was able to pay off my car and my credit card while I was out there. I didn't get combat pay while I was in the Gulf (we weren't at war in '96), but there was hardship and sea duty pay. They were taxed when I was stateside or deployed elsewhere, but not when I was in the Gulf. That was how the Navy did things back then, I'm not sure how the other services worked.
