Tax Time Cometh


Many of us (cough, namely me) would like to get through the holidays before beginning to think about tax season.  The reality is that tax season is just around the corner and pre-planning is never a bad thing.

DFAS has already put out tax statement dates and information.  Here is what you have to look forward to:

Why wait for the mail? Military service members, military retirees and annuitants, and federal civilian employees paid by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) can get their 2010 tax statements up to two weeks earlier using myPay.  DFAS has recently released the schedule for posting and mailing 2010 tax statements such as W-2s, 1099Rs and 1099INTs customers will need to file their annual tax returns.
