 While you and your spouse are in a state for military service, you are both protected by the Military Spouse Residency Relief Act  (MSRRA) which means neither you nor your spouse is required to pay state income taxes in the state where you are stationed.  This can change if your spouse was already a resident of that state prior to you being stationed there.

I appreciated the answer up at the top from what seems to be a professional.  There's no need to just throw random links onto the answer.  I was looking for an answer, SweetieJean, not a reading assignment.
