News from Our Partners: Free MilTax Services Available to Recent Retirees


If you separated from service within the last 12 months, you are eligible to file your taxes for free with MilTax e-filing software and support. The MilTax software is available Jan. 18, 2023 through April, with extensions through mid-October.

Veterans are eligible for free support from Military OneSource, including MilTax, until 365 days past end of tour of service, retirement date or discharge date. This includes service members on the Temporary Disability Retirement List, as well as their immediate family including spouses, children and anyone who has legal responsibility for a service member’s children, for the benefit of the children.

New in 2024, eligibility is being verified through the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System. Visit Military OneSource to learn more about eligibility.
