You may simply have not coded your W-2 as active duty wages.

To code your military W-2 as active duty income:

  • Once in your return, click on Federal Taxes tab and choose Wages & Income
  • Click Edit next to your military W-2 
  • Click Continue on the W-2 entry screen to get to the screen titled "Do any of these uncommon situations apply to this W-2?
  • Click the box to the left of Active duty military (see screen shot below)

If that doesn't work, the next step is to delete your W-2 and re-enter:

  • Click Federal Taxes tab then Wages & Income tab
  • Click Add/Edit next to military W-2
  • Click trash can icon next to W-2

I had to delete and re-enter and that fixed it.  I think it has to do with importing info from previous year.
