A member does not acquire a new domicile or legal residence for purposes of income tax when the member’s presence in the state is solely due to military orders. Furthermore, the SCRA prohibits states (where the member is located merely because of military orders) from including military income of a nonresident member to increase the tax liability imposed on nonmilitary income earned by the nonresident member to increase the tax liability imposed on nonmilitary income earned by the nonresident member or spouse subject to tax by the state. The military income is taxable only by the member’s domicile state, if the domicile state has an income tax.
