Military Spouse Residency Relief Act
On November 11, 2009, the President signed into law the Military Spouse Residency Relief Act. This Act, among other things, provides that when a service member leaves his or her home State in accord with military or naval orders, the service member's spouse may retain residency in his or her home State for voting and tax purposes, after relocating from that State to accompany the service member. In the State of South Carolina an exemption from South Carolina withholding tax may be claimed if a spouse of an employee is a member of the US Armed Services and their state of legal residence is not South Carolina.
