U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) introduced the Special Operations Forces Tax Cut Act, or H.R. 5747, legislation to ensure special operators who are serving in combat receive the same tax relief:

“America’s military conducts global operations that don’t easily fit into one nation or geographic region,” Hudson said. “Oftentimes, it’s our special operations forces who serve in these dangerous corners of the world. These elite soldiers put their lives on the line, and they deserve the exact same tax relief as every other solider who serves in a combat zone. By expanding the Combat Zone Tax Exclusion, we will modernize the law to reflect the current realities of warfare and ensure fairness for service members who serve in combat situations.”

Under current law, a soldier who is deployed to a combat zone receives the Combat Zone Tax Exclusion, or CZTE. Present combat zones include the Afghanistan Area, the Kosovo Area and the Arabian Peninsula Area.
