Combat Zone Tax Exclusion (CZTE) for Sinai, Egypt
Effective June 9, 2015, Congress declared that the Sinai Peninsula is a qualified hazardous duty area. Members who serve in a qualified hazardous duty area and also receive Hostile Fire Pay (HFP) or Imminent Danger Pay (IDP) while performing service in that area are entitled to CZTE. This includes service members who were assigned (Permanent Change of Station (PCS) or Temporary Change of Station (TCS)), on Temporary Duty (TDY), and/or mobilized to the Sinai.
If you served in this area at any time from June 9, 2015 to December 31, 2017, please bring a copy of one of these forms of substantiating documents to your finance office: (1) PCS/TCS/TDY mobilization orders, (2) the DD Form1351-2, Travel Voucher or Sub voucher, and/or the (3) Defense Travel System (DTS) voucher. Your finance office will take action to adjust your taxable wages and issue an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form W2c, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, for June 2015 through December 31, 2017, if needed. Traditional Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) contributions may also need to be changed from tax-deferred to tax-exempt.
Starting January 1, 2018, if you serve in the Sinai, the CZTE will be processed with no action required by you.

POWER OF ATTORNEY
There are times when spouses, parents and even tax preparers need to talk with us regarding pay issues for our military customers. By law, we must respect the privacy of all our military members and cannot discuss any aspect of their pay unless you have a valid special power of attorney. Powers of attorney give someone the ability to act on a military member's behalf. Discuss this with your chosen representative and a member of your legal assistance team.
