  • Under "General Information", the revision is required on the stand alone Form 540X Instructions, Page 1, and in the 1999 Package X, Page 329.

It should read:

Military Compensation.

In addition, please attach a copy of your military W-2, a revised Form 540NR, Schedule CA (540NR), and any other affected forms or schedules to your Form 540X.
