Is Alaska considered overseas for military personnel?

The military considers installations in Alaska and Hawaii overseas locations because it is not part of the contiguous United States. Does that apply here when it comes to filing taxes?

Is Alaska considered overseas for military personnel?

No, it does not.  Alaska and Hawaii are OCONUS (Outside the Contiguous United States), and qualify for special  allowances within the military, but are not considered overseas for tax purposes.
