(relating to certain combat zone compensation of members of the Armed 
Forces) is amended by redesignating subsections (c) and (d) as 
subsections (d) and (e), respectively, and by inserting after 
subsection (b) the following new subsection:
    ``(c) Spouses.--Gross income does not include qualifying wages 
received by the spouse of a person described in subsection (a) or (b) 
for any month during any part of which such person--
            ``(1) served in a combat zone, or
            ``(2) was hospitalized as a result of wounds, disease, or 
        injury incurred while serving in a combat zone; but this 
        paragraph shall not apply for any month beginning more than 2 
        years after the date of the termination of combatant activities 
        in such zone.''.
    (b) Qualifying Wages.--Subsection (d) of section 112 of the 
Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (relating to definitions), as 
redesignated by subsection (a), is amended by adding at the end the 
following new paragraph:
            ``(6) The term `qualifying wages' means wages (as defined 
        in section 3121(a)) and self-employment income (as defined in 
        section 1402(b)).''.
    (c) Conforming Amendment.--Section 2201(b) of the Internal Revenue 
Code of 1986 is amended by striking ``section 112(c)'' and inserting

apply to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2003.
