Do not report untaxed combat pay on your FAFSA. Combat pay should be zero for enlisted persons and warrant officers (including commission officers) because their combact pay is entirely non-taxable. For commissioned officers generally, combat pay in excess of the highest enlisted persons' pay (plus imminent danger/hostile pay) is taxable. Combat pay that was taxable in your adjusted gross income should be reported on the FAFSA so it will not be used to calculate your aid eligibility. For more information about reporting combat pay on the FAFSA visit the Armed Forces' Tax Guide.
If a student’s parent or guardian died as a result of military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after the events of 9/11, the student may be eligible for additional aid. To be eligible, at the time of the parent’s or guardian’s death, the student must have been less than 24 years old or enrolled at least part-time at a college or career school.
