The Defense Finance and Accounting Service has compiled a schedule of dates when military members and Department of Defense civilian employees can access their tax statements through myPay.

Servicemembers, military retirees, military annuitants or beneficiaries, and civilian DOD employees will be able to view, save and print their tax statements from mypay.dfas.mil before February.

The myPay Web site provides a secure method for users to manage their pay account information, without having to make office visits, according to a release announcing the schedule.

DFAS is projecting tax statements will be posted on myPay on the following dates:

• Military annuitants — from Saturday to Dec. 18;• DOD civilians — from Dec. 24 to Dec. 29;• Reserve and National Guard — from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1;• Military retirees — from Jan. 1 to Jan. 5;• Marine Corps — from Jan. 13 to Jan. 21;• Army, Air Force and Navy — from Jan. 16 to Jan. 26.

According to the Web site, all current myPay military users and DFAS civilian employees who request or already have a myPay personal identification number and access myPay are consenting to receive only an electronic W-2. They may, however, elect to receive a hard copy W-2 through the myPay Web site.

All other DOD civilian employees who use myPay may elect to receive an electronic W-2 in lieu of a hard copy through myPay.

Last year, more than 1.2 million users viewed their tax statements on myPay, according to a DFAS statement.
