Replacing and Correcting Military Tax Forms
At the end of each year, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), provides you with the appropriate tax statements based on the type of income you have received. In most cases, this is the W2 reporting your military compensation. Special W2s or other tax statements are also produced for certain income such as Savings Deposit Program interest or DITY move travel reimbursement.
The Defense Finance and Accounting Service provides responsive, professional finance and accounting services to the men and women who defend America. DFAS pays about 6.4 million people and in FY 2010 made 8.1 million travel payments, paid 11.4 million commercial invoices, made $578 billion in disbursements to pay recipients, and managed $487.9 billion in military retirement and health benefits funds.
The services use a convenient website called MYPAY to access your personal tax statements and a schedule of when your tax statements will be available online. This information is available to military members and DOD civilian employees. If you need someone else to access your information for you from home, a limited access account is also available. If you have problems accessing the site, you can call DFAS Customer Service Contact Center at 1-888-DFAS411.

Sometimes, a military service member may need assistance correcting or replacing their W2, and cannot do so using MYPAY. Military and civilian personnel who have not received their W-2s or think they need a corrected W-2 must contact their local military finance/pay office or their activity’s customer service representative, respectively. If the local finance office or customer service representative is not available or cannot help, please follow the directions, based on your status.
- Army: Army members must go through their servicing finance office or Defense Military Pay office to get a replacement and corrected W-2s. If you have separated from the Army or are requesting W-2s for off-line payments (student loans/claims) or do it yourself (DITY) moves, etc., call 1-888-332-7411. Army members who separated from the service with a debt requiring a W-2 should call 1-800-962-0648.
