If you're a member of the military, you might have more than one option when it comes to filing state income taxes
First, you need to understand these two terms used by the military:
From a tax standpoint, your SLR is considered your “domicile” or “resident” state as long as you are on active duty. Even if you are stationed in another state, you’re still considered a resident of your SLR.
IMPORTANT: A law affects where the spouses of military service members can file state income taxes. For more information about where the spouses of military service members can file state income taxes, see Military Spouse Residency Relief Act and State Taxes (from Turbo Tax).
