On June 9, 1943, with the enactment of "The Current Tax Payment Act of 1943," the serviceman became a taxpayer in a class by himself. Previously there were special benefits in favor of the serviceman, but now, for the year 1943, even the method of computing tax is entirely different for servicemen than it is for civilians. The reason why this subject should be of special interest to attorneys is that the present law affords a great opportunity for substantial tax savings and refunds in favor of servicemen for 1943. Thus, substantial refunds will be available for most servicemen who had a moderate or large earned income in 1942.
