The interesting part is that I am currently deployed to the Persian Gulf. That being said, the monthly contributions will be tax free as per the TSP provisions and when the account is liquidated, the proceeds will also be free of capital gains taxes as per the combat zone tax exclusion provisions. As far as I can tell, this is essentially a combination of the best parts of the Traditional and Roth IRAs. The essential part of my question is whether its possible to regain the pretax contribution benefit if and when I make a lump sum contribution using post tax dollars (can I get that taxed money back?)
