Senate votes unanimously for Jones’ Military Widow’s Tax Elimination Act in final defense bill

Good news for Gold Star Wives:

"The U.S. Senate moved closer yesterday to finally ending the Military Widow’s Tax that taxes military widows and widowers’ survivor benefits.

The Senate voted unanimously on Wednesday to urge House-Senate National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) conference committee members to include the Military Widow’s Tax Elimination Act of 2019 in the NDAA, which authorizes funding to equip, supply and train U.S. troops and support military families.

In a vote of 94-0, the Senate approved a Motion to Instruct measure in support of the bill being included in the annual defense bill. The House has already approved the widow’s tax provision in its version of the bill."
