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.''.

Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (relating to definitions), as 
redesignated by subsection (a), is amended by adding at the end the 
following new paragraph:

        in section 3121(a)) and self-employment income (as defined in 
        section 1402(b)).''.
