Tax Statements for Military Personnel


You may view and print your tax statements, Travel W-2 (Do-It-Yourself, Permanent Change of Station, and Temporary Duty) and Miscellaneous W-2 (loan repayments, suggestions awards, referral bonuses and back pay). These options are not available for Former Spouses.

The Travel and Miscellaneous W-2 options are not available for Broadcasting Board of Governors, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs and Non-Appropriated Fund employees.

For Active/Reserve Military: You may view, print and save your W-2 Wage and Tax Statement on-line. You may access your W-2 from the “Main Menu” by clicking on the Tax Statement (W-2) option. If you have trouble reading the graphic version of your W-2, you can click on the “Text Version” link. The text version of your W-2 lists all your W-2 data items in a single column.

Army Active, Army Reserve and Army Guard soldiers are able to view, print and save their Student Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) tax statements on myPay.

Annuitants: You can view, print and save your tax statement. The tax statement displayed on myPay is the end of year tax statement. Additionally, if the tax statement displayed is incorrect, please contact your customer service representative.

For Civilians: You can view, print and save your tax statement. The tax statement displayed on myPay is the end of year tax statement. Additionally, if the tax statement displayed is incorrect, please see your customer service representative.

Non Appropriated Fund employees: You can view, print and save your tax statement. You may access your W-2 from the “Main Menu” by clicking on the Tax Statement (W-2) option. Any corrected tax statements issued will not be reflected in myPay. Additionally, if the tax statement displayed is incorrect, please see your installation representative.

We recommend you use the Printer Friendly version of your tax statement. For Printer Friendly information, see further below.

If Acrobat Reader is not available to you or you prefer HTML, you can print the HTML version of your tax statement. Follow these instructions. The appearance of the tax statement varies according to the Browser used and your PC's resolution. You will have to adjust your Page Setup for the best printing results. For Internet Explorer, begin with setting the Top and Bottom margins at ".50" inches and the Right and Left margins at ".25" inches. For printing the W-2C on Internet Explorer, begin with setting the Top and Bottom margins at ".80" inches and the Right and Left margins at ".25" inches.

For Internet Explorer if you see a URL, page number, etc. on your printed copy, use Page Setup to clear out the Header and Footer information. Most Browser defaults are set to capture this information so that when an individual prints from the Internet, they will know where the printed data came from. Finally, if you do not want to print the "Back" and "Print" buttons on an extra page, count the number of W-2/W-2C Forms displayed. For every 2 forms displayed there will be one print page. Example, if you have 4 W-2 Forms displayed, the current setup will print 2 on page 1, 2 on page 2, and the Buttons on page 3. So if you set the print range to print only pages 1 through 2, you save a page that contains only the 2 buttons.

Before filing your tax return, carefully separate the copies printed on a single page. When filing your tax return, you are not required to include/send the instructions on the back of the tax statement.

For all other printing issues, please contact the DFAS Centralized Customer Support Unit toll free at 1-888-DFAS411 or 1-888-332-7411, or commercial at (216) 522-5096.

You will be able to access myPay and view your W-2 for one (1) year after you are no longer in a pay status or separated.

How do I stop delivery of my hard copy W-2?

Most users have the option on the Tax Statement screen as well as on the main menu. Exceptions are Annuitants, Savings Deposit Program and Army Student Loan Repayment Program participants, and Travel/Miscellaneous W-2 recipients, for whom there is no option to turn on/off hard copies.

Changing your election to electronic processes the transaction for your pay system that will turn off the hard copy delivery of your Tax Statement.

Once I have elected to stop hard copy of delivery of my W-2, can I start it back up later?

Annually during the period December 1 through January 31, no change can be made to the W-2 delivery method. Using the same process described above, you can make changes to the W-2 delivery method outside of the above "no change" period.

Changing your election to hard copy processes the transaction for your pay system that will re-start the hard copy delivery of your Tax Statement.

Printer Friendly Version

We recommend that you use the Printer Friendly Version of your account and tax statements. The Printer Friendly Version of your account and tax statements is available by clicking the "Printer Friendly" button. It requires Adobe Acrobat Reader. Often, Acrobat Reader is already added to web browsers.

Some may see a File Download dialog box and others may see an error message, "Internet Explorer cannot download...” Both conditions can be addressed by following these steps:

  1. Click the Tools Menu at the top of your Internet Explorer browser.
  2. Click "Internet Options".

  4. Scroll down until you find the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk".
  5. Remove the checkmark from the box adjacent to that text.
  6. Click the Apply button.

Before filing your tax return, carefully separate the copies printed on a single page. When filing your tax return, you are not required to include/send the instructions on the back of the tax statement.
