Military Spouses Residency Relief Act Update | 8/21/2019
The Military Spouses Residency Relief Act (MSRRA) provides that spouses of military personnel who move to Mississippi due to the servicemember spouse being posted for military duty can keep their former residency for tax purposes throughout the marriage.
On December 31, 2018, the MSRRA was changed by amending the Servicemember Civil Relief Act (SCRA) to allow the spouse of a servicemember to elect to use the same residence as the servicemember. The election can be made for any taxable year of the marriage. 
As a result, amended Mississippi income tax returns may be filed to claim the MSRRA exemption for any tax year(s) that are within three (3) years of the due date of the original return filed, or the extended due date, whichever is later. ​​
