Tax Help for Military Members and Families

The IRS provides free tax help for military members and families through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. VITA offers free tax preparation and advice at sites on and off base. Volunteers receive training on military-specific tax issues like combat zone tax benefits, special filing extensions, and other special rules. For more information about filing taxes as a member of the armed forces, speak to a tax advisor or see IRS Publication 3, Armed Forces’ Tax Guide. Tip courtesy of
