Tax Incentives for Guardsmen & Employers


The Issue

As part of an operational reserve fully integrated in ongoing national security missions at home and abroad, National Guard servicemembers continually commit more time to complete military requirements. Additionally, civilian employers provide servicemembers with increased time and flexibility to balance increased military demands and maintain healthy civilian lives with gainful employment.


  • Provide an annual tax credit to employers who employ Reserve Component servicemembers, plus an additional amount dependent on the number of days of military service each employee performed
  • Reduce the threshold Reserve Component servicemembers are able to deduct military travel-related expenses from 100 miles to 50 miles
