The Issue

Reserve component servicemembers who travel at least 100 miles to their duty station for National Guard or Reserve military duty are able to deduct travel-related expenses when filing tax returns.

Recommendation

Reduce the threshold that servicemembers are able to deduct military travel-related expenses from 100 miles to 50 miles.
