Tax Preparation For Military Officers

Military Taxes are Different

There are a lot of things about military life that are different from civilian life.Your taxes are no different. Here are just a few examples

  • The Combat Zone Tax Exclusion
  • Special Rules for Determining if  You Can Exclude Profits from the Sale of Your Home from Taxes
  • The Strickland Decision and Revenue Ruling 78-161
  •  Extending IRS Deadline

At C.L. Sheldon & Company, we specialize in dealing with military tax issues. If you're looking for some help dealing with them, we're ready to lend you a hand. And if you're not a current or prior military officer we're happy to help you too.

Tax preparation fees vary depending on the complexity of the return and the number of state returns involved. Fees start at approximately $200 (slightly less if no state return involved) and for very complex returns could exceed $1,000.  Most active or retired military officers pay between $200 and $500.
