DFAS Tax Statements Available Soon  

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) recently announced that retiree and annuitant pay customers will receive their 2012 tax statements between mid-December and the end of January. Most 1099 forms will also be available a week earlier via the online myPay pay account management system.

Bad addresses create significant delays in receiving end-of-year documents and maintaining accurate contact information is important. According to DFAS officials, incorrect address information is the top reason retirees or annuitants don’t receive their 1099-Rs. 

Individuals without active myPay accounts should call, mail or fax a written request to DFAS-Cleveland, and the processing of a change of address and reissuing a new 1099-R takes at least 30 days. Changes made via myPay accounts take effect in three to five business days, and a copy of their 1099-R can be printed directly from myPay.

For more information, visit the DFAS website or call DFAS at 800-321-1080.
