AG Nessel, MVAA Director Adams Share Important Tax Prep Information for Veterans, Active Service Members

LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) Director Zaneta Adams partnered for an informational video aimed at protecting military members during tax filing season. 

The video, now available on the Department of Attorney General's YouTube page, highlights important reminders for veterans and active military members. 

"Did you know that disabled veterans may be eligible for special tax consideration? Or that through the IRS and the VA, veterans might be eligible for free tax preparation services?" Director Adams said in the video. 

"We also want to remind veterans and active members of the military to be aware of bad actors that will exploit your status to perpetrate scams. And remember, that you should never have to pay to get your DD214 discharge papers," Nessel said in the video. 

Current and former members of the military are encouraged to visit the IRS website for tax forms and information specific to your status as a veteran or active-duty member. 

Additional resources are available through the MVAA's website or by calling 800-MICH-VET. 

Anyone who thinks they're being targeted by a filing scam because of their military status should file a complaint with the Department of Attorney General. Your connection to consumer protection is just a click or phone call away.
