Is active duty military except for Puerto Rico sate taxes?

If you are a U.S. citizen who is also a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico during the fiscal year but receive income as a U.S. government employee in Puerto Rico, you must file a federal tax return.

However, if you are a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico and a member of the U.S. armed forces, your military service pay will be sourced to Puerto Rico even if you work for the military in the U.S. or another U.S. possession. As a member of the U.S. armed forces, you will determine your residency by looking at your home of record. If that home of record is in Puerto Rico, then you are still a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico, even if you are stationed in the U.S. In such a case, you will file a U.S. return only if you have other U.S. sourced income or worldwide income from sources outside of Puerto Rico.


Please seek help in filing the PR return... 

Please note that TurboTax does not support state tax returns from Puerto Rico. You can still file your federal tax return; however, you would need to file the Puerto Rico state return directly with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
