This is a taxable benefit.

The amount is determined by the Department of State, and is a percentage of base pay for a basic 40-hour workweek, separate from the danger pay mentioned above. It is not earned for overtime or weekends. Employees assigned to Iraq or Afghanistan by TCS or PCS receive post differential beginning on the day of arrival. Employees in a TDY status assigned to Iraq or Afghanistan for 42 consecutive calendar days or more will receive post differential for the number of days served, beginning with the first day of detail.
