    It will be started the day he landed in the sandbox, but sometimes it takes some time for it to get started on your pay. You will get a lump sum refund into your paycheck to make up for whatever was taken out during the delay, so look for something like "Federal Tax Refund" or something liek that. I don't remember how they coded it on the LES.

    I believe he has to be in a tax free zone forat least 30 days, so on day 31 that is when the tax free starts.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Yes!!! Some of his "entitlements" have started to come in.. I am just paying off debt with it and making sure he is well taken care of. Just a surprise on the LES today for his HFP/IDP.
