Combat Pay? Taxable? What is considered a "combat zone"?

Enlisted personnel and warrant officers in the military may qualify to have a certain amount of their income excluded from being taxed depending on if they are in a "combat zone" as defined by the President via Executive Order.

Their are two items that people are often confused:

1. Am I a member of the "armed forces" for purposes of this exclusion?
2. Am I in a combat zone?

The IRS has published a 27 page publication that explains all of the intericate details of this exclusion. However, most need a tax professional to explain the "gray" areas.
