Question

I’m an active duty military service member. What’s my state of residence military for tax purposes?

Answer

Your state of legal residence (SLR) is the state listed on the State of Legal Residence (SLR) Certificate Form DD-2058 you completed and filed with your branch of service.

States don’t all treat military income the same way. Check with your state to see how you should file your active duty state taxes and report your military income.
