Military Tax Help
Although military taxes are actually quite like normal civilian taxes many people in the military are not aware of the difference between the two types of taxes and may need some extra help. The only main tax difference between the two types of taxes, civilian and military, is that if you are in active service you can delay sending in your taxes and that military personal tend to get way more tax cuts than civilians do.
If you need help filing your military taxes you are probably in the military. The main thing that you need to keep in mind is that if you are in active duty your taxes will be handled differently than a normal persons would be. If you are in active duty, meaning that you are away from home in an active military zone, such as deployed overseas in battle, then you will pay your taxes in a different way. If you are in active duty the IRS will be made aware. Being in active duty you normally will not have time to file your taxes. Also, even if you file you generally will not have time to deal with paying taxes and other bills. Basically if you are in active service you are not expected to file your taxes on time nor are you required to pay the IRS right away. If for some reason the IRS does not get notified that you are sent into active duty and you start to get notices from the IRS there are a few things that you need to do. First, you can call the IRS and let them know. they will probably need to contact a supervisor but they will double check and figure it out. Also you can send in a paper stating that you are in active duty. Remember to write active duty on the envelope too to make sure that it gets to the right department.
If after all of this you still need help there are several things that you can do. You can contact the IRS and talk to them about any problems that you may be having. Also, you can contact a military tax professional. There are usually some within each branch of the military.
