My DS has not received his W2 form in the mail and has no idea where to get it. He has asked around and he says everyone is as clueless as him. Where does he get his W2 from?
Can we still claim our kids when they are in the Academy or the Prep School?If you still have difficulty getting logged on...this is from the USAFA website:
CADET & CADET CANDIDATE TAX INFORMATION
Most cadets don’t have many deductions and file an EZ form. The Academy has volunteers that are available on an appointment-only basis to help cadets with their taxes (free of charge) to ensure they have used all the deductions they are entitled to. Income Tax assistance is available through USAFA/JA (located in Harmon Hall, (719) 333-3940). If your cadet (C4Cs) needs proof of attendance for you to claim him or her for part of the year, have your cadet visit the Academy Registrar and request a letter. The letter will be available for pick up from the Registrar’s Office in Fairchild Hall.
But it makes sense, since you are not paying your child's living expenses anymore. Why should you be able to claim them when Uncle Same provides them with everything they could ever want or need?Many CPA's who are willing to go to bat for their clients have disagreed with the Service Academy interpretation. Even the Service Academies state in their letter its not the IRS's official position.
