MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 11, 2021 04:20 PM
From: Representative Robert E. Merski and Rep. Brandon J. Markosek
To: All House members
Subject: Earned Income Tax Exemptions - Non-Military Spouses of Active Duty Military
 
Pennsylvania’s Tax Reform Code provides that active dutyservice members who are residents of the state are exempt from paying taxes on income earned for their military service while on active duty either inside of outside of Pennsylvania. However, these exemptions do not apply to non-military spouses who reside with active duty service members when they aredeployed outside of the state. Non-military spouses often face various hardships while supporting the needs of their active military duty spouse, yet they are not supported under the same laws.
 
To further provide for our military families, I am introducing two pieces of legislation. The first bill would exempt non-military spouses from state income taxes, while the second bill would exempt them from local income taxes. Our non-military spouses members deserve our full support, in addition to our active duty military service members.
 
Please join me in co-sponsoring legislation to honor our active duty military service members and their spouses for the sacrifices they make in service to our nation.
