INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 6, 2018) –2018 tax statements for military, retiree, annuitant and federal civilian employee customers serviced by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service will be distributed mid-December through January 2019.

The IRS tax forms will be available via myPay, the Department of Defense online pay account management system (https://mypay.dfas.mil/) for most of the 6.4 million DFAS customers. In many cases, the electronic online forms are available much earlier and more securely than those sent to customers electing delivery by mail.

DFAS continues to provide IRS Forms 1095-B or 1095-C for military, retiree and federal civilian employees who receive healthcare insurance coverage through the Tricare or Federal Employee Health Benefit programs.

Agency officials encourage everyone paid by DFAS to select electronic-only delivery of their documents to increase the security of their vital personal information. For some, the deadline for selecting electronic-only delivery for 2018 tax statements has passed, but ensuring their future documents are kept within myPay’s secure environment until needed can reduce opportunities for this information to fall into the hands of identity thieves.

While many DFAS customers have relied on their individual myPay accounts to receive their important tax documents, some military members, retirees and federal civilian employees occasionally require alternative methods. The agency’s askDFAS application provides several secure online forms to request W-2s, 1099Rs and 1095s. Customers can go to https://go.usa.gov/xnXJc to request a tax statement mailed to their home address.
