Your client works for a defense contractor and was assigned to work on a military base in Australia. As a condition of his employment, he was required to live in housing that was provided to military personnel. The housing provided was a condominium located in a civilian neighborhood that was 20 miles from the military base where he performed his services. The employer paid over $6,000 of rent while the employee was living there. Your client would like to know whether the value of the housing can be excluded from his gross income. He read an article that indicated that employees who are required to live in a "camp" in a foreign country can exclude the cost of the housing from gross income. What is the result of your research?
