DOD’s Military OneSource MilTax Offers Free Tax Services to Service Members, Families

The Department of Defense announced today the annual launch of Military OneSource’s MilTax suite of 100% free tax services for the military community, including personalized support from tax consultants, easy-to-use tax preparation and e-filing software, and current information about filing taxes in the military.

MilTax tax preparation and e-filing software is now available through mid-October for service members, their immediate families, and surviving spouses. Provided exclusively by the Department of Defense and powered by an industry-leading tax service provider, the software was designed specifically with the military in mind. From addressing combat and training pay to deployments, housing and rentals, the secure and confidential MilTax software walks users step-by-step through a series of questions to help them complete and file their federal return and up to three state tax forms.

“We are excited to once again offer this easy-to-use, convenient and accurate tax service to our service members and their families,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy Kim Joiner. “The Department of Defense is committed to providing the military community with personalized support and resources at no cost, and MilTax is a benefit they have rightfully earned with their service.”

MilTax services include unlimited access to tax consultants trained to help with complex tax situations specific to service members and their families. Tax consultants are available year-round to answer questions related to extensions and deadlines, refunds for surviving family members, the 2020 Social Security tax deferral, and more.

For more information, call 800-342-9647 to schedule an appointment to speak with a MilTax consultant, or visit Military OneSource to get started filing your taxes.
