HERE’S A TIP FROM THE I-R-S.

HI… I’M DAVID… I’M A (MILITARY SERVICE BRANCH) VETERAN AND I WORK FOR THE I-R-S.

I’D LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT SOME IMPORTANT TAX BENEFITS JUST FOR MILITARY MEMBERS.

FOR EXAMPLE... WHEN YOU'RE SERVING IN A COMBAT ZONE, YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT FILING A TAX RETURN UNTIL AT LEAST 180 DAYS AFTER YOU GET BACK.

YOU OR YOUR SPOUSE CAN CERTAINLY FILE SOONER THAN THAT, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

AND REMEMBER… SERVICE MEMBERS CAN USUALLY GET HELP PREPARING AND FILING THEIR TAXES FREE OF CHARGE.
