Taxes may be inevitable, but tax season does not have to be a source of added stress in your life. This section provides in-depth guides and helpful articles created specifically for life in the military. We also have detailed information on MilTax, the free Military OneSource tax services available to service members and eligible family members. These easy-to-use services include secure online tax preparation and filing software and trained tax consultants available over the phone. If you prefer in-person support, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program is available at installations worldwide.
