  • Tax Return Filing and Payment Extensions for the Military— Members of the United States armed forces are often deployed outside of the U.S. when tax time rolls around.

The Internal Revenue Service recognizes this fact and gives many military and support personnel an extension on their tax deadlines.
  • Veterans Employment and Training Center (Department of Labor)—provides veterans and transitioning service members with the resources and services such as transition and employment services (TAP) and Compliance Assistance for Employment disputes to succeed in the 21st century workforce by maximizing their employment opportunities, protecting their employment rights and meeting labor-market demands with qualified veterans today.

A collaborative effort among 22 federal agencies, Disability.gov connects people with disabilities to the information and resources they need to actively participate in the workforce and in their communities.

  • From Military to Police: Top 15 Resources—Transitioning from the military to an office job is difficult to do. You go from a life of activity, training, fitness, and combat to a computer screen in a small cubicle. For many retiring soldiers, this path just doesn’t feel right. They need to get the excitement back in their careers. That’s why many veterans turn to the police force to continue serving their country while at home.
