If you serve in the United States military, it’s important to be aware of the numerous military federal tax provisions that apply to you and your family. Many of these provisions are intended to directly benefit service members when filing returns and paying taxes.
In this IRS video, a spokesman discusses some of the IRS tax code provisions that apply to persons serving in the U.S. military, including extended filing deadlines and various tax deductions. For example, a service member may deduct reasonable out-of-pocket moving expenses if traveling to a permanent change of duty station; he or she may also deduct travel expenses if the new duty station is more than 100 miles away.
