Members of the Military
Special rules may apply if you served or are serving in the Armed Forces in a combat zone or a contingency operation, or become hospitalized resulting from an injury received while serving in such an area or operation. You generally have at least 180 days after you leave the designated combat zone/contingency operation to file and pay taxes. If the Service determines you to be affected by a presidentially declared disaster or a terroristic or military action, you may have up to one year after the due date of your return to file and pay taxes, depending on the deadline specified by the Service.
More money is always good, right? Generally, yes. But it’s always wise to know how your income (even if it went down) might affect your household’s tax liability.
