They are paid for a period during which the individual performed services in the uniformed services while on active duty for a period of more than 30 days.
These payments represent all or a portion of the wages the individual would have received from the employer if the individual had been performing services for the employer during that period. You must include in income the excess over this maximum amount. The portion of your QRD reported by your employer as wages on Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, is included in your gross income and is taxable.
However, the earnings on the tax-exempt portion of the distribution are taxable.
The TSP will provide a statement showing the taxable and nontaxable portions of the distribution.
