The 2020 JBM-HH Tax Center is now closed for the season. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS has extended both the filing deadline and the deadline for 2019 tax payments to July 15, 2020. Some states have also extended their filing and payment deadlines, so taxpayers should check with their specific states for details. For those seeking an alternative to the JBM-HH Tax Center, we recommend active duty service members visit www.militaryonesource.mil/miltax-software for free online tax preparation software and assistance. For retirees and other civilians, the IRS has free e-filing options for taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $69,000 and less. Learn more about those options at https://www.irs.gov/filing/e-file-options.

Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP)
Benefit Fact Sheet
Ever had questions about what the SBP is, whether you are eligible to enroll, or what benefits your surviving beneficiaries will receive? Then you should link to this very informative web page provided by MyArmyBenefits: http://myarmybenefits.us.army.mil/benefit-library/federal-benefits/survivor-benefit-plan-(sbp)?serv=123.

Here is a summary of that page:
Military pay, including active duty pay and allowances and retired pay, stops upon a Soldier's death. The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) is a program through which the Department of Defense provides monthly, cost-of-living-adjusted income to eligible survivors of Soldiers who die on Active Duty, including Reserve Soldiers and National Guard Soldiers who die on Federal Active Duty, and of Retirees who choose to continue participating in the program after they retire.

Soldiers who retire due to a service-connected disability incurred while on active duty, whether Regular or Reserve, may participate in SBP.

Survivors of National Guard Soldiers with less than 20 years of service who die while performing State Active Duty are not eligible to receive benefits under the federal SBP program. Their survivors may be eligible to receive survivor benefits from their state's civilian employee retirement system or another program administered for them by their state. Survivors of National Guard Soldiers who have completed 20 years of service may be eligible to receive benefits under RCSBP if they enrolled in the program when they received their 20-year Letters even if they were serving on State Active Duty at time of death.
Additional Information

For more information, please contact your nearest installation RSO and or visit the SBP web page maintained by the Army Retirement Services Office (Army RSO), Army G-1:

The Fort Myer Client Services Office passes along the following notice concerning the Copying of Military Identification Cards from the Military District of Washington’s Force Protection Office:

Title 18, US Code Part I, Chapter 33, Section 701, and implementing agency regulations generally prohibit the photocopying of military/DoD identification cards and common access cards (CAC). Violations of this law can be punishable by both fine and/or imprisonment. This prohibition does not apply to medical establishments (i.e. doctor's office, hospitals, etc.) who are allowed take a copy for the purpose of filing insurance claims; and other government agencies in the performance of official government business. Many military members, family members and DoD employees are unaware of this law.

Be aware that recent incidents regarding the photocopying of military/DoD identification cards and CAC, by commercial establishments to verify military affiliation or provide government rates for service, have been reported. Criminal elements and terrorist organizations place U.S. government identifications as a high value logistical element when planning acts against the U.S. military. Although commercial establishments are not prohibited from asking for military/government identification, many government personnel and commercial establishments are unaware of the prohibition on duplication of government identification. Unfortunately, there are no safeguards in place to ensure a government identification card won't be counterfeited or "cloned" based on a photocopy by a commercial establishment.

It is recommended that military/DoD personnel provide a state driver's license or other form of photo identification to be photocopied if an establishment insists on a photocopy of the traveler's identification.
