Tax Season Is Here Again

1 Feb

As the tax season opens many companies are advertising free tax filing, but here is an offer just for the military. Military OneSource is providing free tax consultation and free online tax filing services to military members and their families. Tax consultants are available 7 days a week from 7 a.m. – 11 p.m. ET by calling the Military OneSource Tax Hotline at 1-800-730-3802. A benefit to using this resource is the consultants understand military pay and benefits. The hotline is there to help you with any tax related questions and to provide assistance with using the H&R Block At Home Basic product.

Here are a few points regarding this program:

  • Participants must register for Military OneSource and log on to the site for access to the H&R Block At Home Basic product. A separate logon for the H&R Block At Home site is required.
  • Do not create a user account on the public H&R Block Web site. You will be charged a fee if you file using the public H&R Block Website/product. If you create an account on the public H&R Block Web site, regardless of how you access the account in the future, the H&R Block system will view you as a public user.
  • Those eligible for the program are active duty, Guard and Reserve (regardless of activation status), spouses and dependent children (authorized in DEERS), family members handling the affairs of a deployed service member, and severely injured service members or family members handling their affairs.
  • Participants will have free access to the H&R Block At Home Basic product. Those with more complicated returns may incur charges if they upgrade to the H&R Block At Home Premium product.
  • Participants can file up to three state resident returns for each federal return they file with the H&R Block At Home Basic product.
