Military programs are governed by federal law, Department of Defense policy and additional policies specific to the branches of service. The below are the excerpts from federal law that govern deployment assistance programs in the military.

Family Programs/Centers

Chapter 88 of Title 10, United States Code, "Military Family Programs and Military Child Care," February 1, 2010. This legislation provides authority to the Office of Family Policy to coordinate programs and activities of the military departments and to make recommendations to the secretaries of the military departments regarding military family programs. It also establishes online resources providing comprehensive family program information for service members and their families.



Picture of a woman working on her taxes. During a deployment, the last thing you want to think about is filing state and federal income taxes. As overwhelming as it may seem, filing your tax return doesn't have to be difficult. The Internal Revenue Service recognizes that service members and their families often face special circumstances and has taken measures to make this annual obligation easier.

You may not have received the forms you needed, you may need extra time or you may have been out of the country on a deployment. Regardless of the reason, you may be able to request an extension to allow you more time to complete your paperwork.
