Our military has to pay taxes on their salary? That is rediculous!

If your overseas you get state and federal back , they take it out but you get a 3rd check a month , still got to pay Medicare and social security

idk about now but in the 90s my dad had to pay for his uniform too

I’m no expert here but depending on the branch, everybody gets 3 or 4 uniforms initially issued free. Officers pay some percentage.

Yes Federal and State. Some states dont tax you though.

Our troops shouldn’t have to pay taxes out of their check. Specially if their overseas. Our government is a joke!
