    WASHINGTON, May 31, 2006 – An act signed into law May 29 by President Bush solves a conflict in the tax code by allowing servicemembers who serve in a combat zone to still contribute to their individual retirement accounts, a Defense Department official said here today. The Heroes Earned Retirement Opportunities Act amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow servicemembers to include tax-exempt combat zone pay in determining the allowable income tax deduction for contributions to retirement savings plans, said Army Lt.

    Court upholds earned income tax credit By Carmel Perez Snyder Capitol Bureau Oklahoma's earned income tax credit statute is constitutional, according to a ruling Tuesday by the state Supreme Court. Oklahoma City resident Jerry R. Fent had challenged the constitutionality of the statute, which provides tax credits to lower-income residents. "I'll have to confer with my attorney, Bob Keel, after reading the opinion," Fent said. "I can't see how they can legalize giving gifts to people who have never paid taxes. They are not taxpayers. This is simply transferring wealth from one private individual to another." Chief Justice Joseph Watt,...
