Federal Acquisition Regulation: Taxes-Foreign Contracts in Afghanistan; Correction
Document Number: 2019-22282
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-15
Agency: Department of Defense, General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions, National Aeronautics and Space Administration
On September 20, 2019, DoD, GSA, and NASA published a document proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to add two new clauses that notify contractors of requirements relating to Afghanistan taxes or similar charges when contracts are being performed in Afghanistan. The document heading carried an incorrect Regulation Identifier Number (RIN). This document carries the correct RIN.
Voluntary State Tax Withholding From Retired Pay
Document Number: 2019-21968
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-10-15
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
It is the policy of the Uniformed Services to accept written requests from current and former members for voluntary State income tax withholding from monthly retired or retainer pay when the Department has an agreement for such withholding with the State named in the request. Rather than an unnecessary part in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this notice provides administrative-type information to those members and States interested in applying for or engaging in this tax withholding arrangement.
Voluntary State Tax Withholding From Retired Pay
Document Number: 2019-21967
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-10-15
Agency: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary
This direct final rule removes DoD's regulation on the voluntary state income tax withholding from the monthly retired or retainer pay of any member or former member of the uniformed Services. That regulation is unnecessary because it restates current law; sets forth internal policy and procedures; and conveys to the public administrative and procedural information that does not require rulemaking. Accordingly, DoD will remove this part and publish a document in the Federal Register informing the States and current and former members of that administrative information, such as where to submit requests for income withholding.
