Please support H.R. 2929, the Federal Employee Combat Zone Tax Parity Act of 2017.

I'm surprised at how many people think Federal Employees serving combat zones are not taxed.

The truth is we are fully taxed on every penny. While I have no complaint that the military isn't taxed and wouldn't care if that was the only exception, but it is not. Non-Government civilians employed overseas also enjoy a tax write-off of the first $101,300 of income for 2016.

This is granted because the belief is they are paying income tax and VAT to the country they are living in. But countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, etc do not have VAT taxes or income taxes. So American contract workers paid by the US Government are enjoying a massive tax write-off. This write-off is so large, it is even greater than any member of the military enjoys which is capped at $98,665.20.

I hope you'll take 5 minutes and use the link below to write your representative in support of this bill.
