(d) Monthly Active-Duty Income Differential.— For purposes of this section, the monthly active-duty income differential of a member is the difference between—
(1) the average monthly civilian income of the member; and
(2) the member’s total monthly military compensation.
(e) Definitions.— In this section:
(1) The term “average monthly civilian income”, with respect to a member of a reserve component, means the amount, determined by the Secretary concerned, of the earned income of the member for either the 12 months preceding the member’s mobilization or the 12 months covered by the member’s most recent Federal income tax filing, divided by 12.
(2) The term “total monthly military compensation” means the amount, computed on a monthly basis, of the sum of—
