ok i was in the airforce for 4 years and when we deployed our income was always tax free. whether we were in iraq for 4 months or 12 months. the money we earned while in theater was tax free.
now that im a contractor they are telling us that we have to be overseas for 330 days inorder to get tax free income. whats the deal with that??
and how does the irs prove that you werent overseas. (not that im trying anything funny, i actually have taxes coming out due to the fear of the contract not lasting a year)
thanks in advance!
