Coast Guard Legal Assistance
A: You are encouraged to contact a Coast Guard Legal Assistance Attorney, who can advise you on your rights and options.
A: The deadline to file your federal taxes is now 15 July. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus-tax-relief-and-economic-impact-payments. Many State deadlines are also delayed, but you should check with yours to be sure https://www.taxadmin.org/state-tax-agencies.
A: The payment is based on the amount of adjusted gross income you declared on your last tax return. You likely do not need to take any action. The IRS will be sending out a letter after the payment is made to confirm you received it, but they will not be calling or contacting you to seek personal information so beware of scams. For more information, see https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus-tax-relief-and-economic-impact-payments.
A: Each State sets its own eligibility guidelines, so you need to check yours: https://www.dol.gov/general/topic/unemployment-insurance. In the event, the spouse does not qualify in the State where you are currently residing, also check the military member’s State.
A: Quite possibly. See ISSUE PAPER for more information.
