Deployed filing state taxes

To file your returns, you have two (2) choices.  File on paper by mailing in or efile using software such as TurboTax.  You may be eligible for free filing with TurboTax.  Just go to TurboTax.com and start for free.  There is help available through your legal office or base volunteer tax assistance office as well. 

 

NOTE:  You do get an automatic extension of 6 months if you are in a combat zone. Your return will not be due until 6 mos after you return from deployment.

To update your withholding you also have two choices.  On paper with forms available in your finance office or online at Mypay.  For more information check out this helpful link or visit your legal office.
