The Congress and the president asked the 14th Quadrennial Review of Military Compensation to study the implications of moving from the current system of military compensation, involving pay and tax-free allowances, to a salary system that eliminates the allowances. This presentation outlines an initial analysis of what adoption of a salary system could mean for Service member take-home pay, cost to the Department of Defense (DoD), and cost to the federal government.
