Tax Alert: If you're a legal resident of Kentucky, Minnesota, New Mexico or Oklahoma, your military pay may be exempt from state income tax withholding. It could pay to know that facts.
At the end of each year, we provide you with the appropriate tax statements based on the type of income you have received. In most cases, this is the W2 reporting your military compensation. Special W2s or other tax statements are also produced for certain income such as Savings Deposit Program interest or DITY move travel reimbursement.
A schedule of when these tax statements will be available on myPay or placed in the mail is posted to this site between mid-November and mid-December each year.
