ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) has compiled a schedule of dates when service members, military retirees and annuitants, and defense civilian employees can access their tax statements through myPay and when they can anticipate to receive the hardcopy delivery by mail.
Military members, retirees/annuitants and Department of Defense civilian employees will once again have access to view, save and print their tax statements from myPay at https://mypay.dfas.mil.
DFAS delivers personal pay information and provides the ability to process pay-related transactions in a timely, safe and secure manner for all its members through myPay. The Web-based system eliminates the risks associated with postal delivery by allowing members to access electronic tax statements and other financial information on line. myPay matches existing industry standards for the highest level of encryption and security.
