MILTAX: TAX SERVICES FOR THE MILITARY

This tax season, start with MilTax from Military OneSource and the Department of Defense. MilTax free tax services include tax prep and e-filing software and personalized support that address the realities of military life – deployments, combat and training pay, housing and rentals, multistate filings, living OCONUS and more.

 

Free Tax Prep and Filing Software

MilTax preparation and e-filing software is available January 19 through mid-October. Powered by an industry-leading tax service provider, it's designed to address situations specific to the military.

This easy-to-use, self-paced tax software walks you through a series of questions to help you complete and electronically file your federal return and up to three state tax forms. Calculations are 100% accurate – guaranteed by the software provider. Visit the software details page for more information.

On Jan. 15, 2021, the IRS announced they will start accepting and processing 2020 tax year returns on Feb. 12, 2021. This does not impact your ability to begin filing now. Get a head start and file with MilTax today or speak with a MilTax consultant for help planning ahead.
