Dollars Tax refund.jpg More than 133,000 vets may qualify for this tax refund windfall From Army Times. By Karen Jowers. "More than 133,000 veterans may qualify for a refund of federal taxes they paid on disability severance pay dating back to 1991 ― taxes that shouldn’t have been collected in the first place. Within the next month, Defense Department officials will send notification letters to veterans that they may be eligible for the refund, said Army Lt. Col. David Dulaney, executive director of the Armed Forces Tax Council. Eligible veterans will have a year after they receive the notice to file a claim for the refund. These refunds, which are the result of a law passed in 2016, apply to veterans who received this pay dating back to Jan. 17, 1991, with taxes withheld, and who also qualified for disability...

As anyone who has followed the news knows, Congress failed to pass a spending bill on January 19, 2018. This article and thread is for information and discussion of the impact of the shutdown on the Disability Evaluation System, military disability compensation and benefits, and related issues. (Some of the links posted are general in nature, so there will be some overlap with discussion or information of other government services impacted by the shutdown in the links provided). Starting off, I will say that we don't know how long this shutdown and the impasse will last. Historically, it has not lasted very long. The longest shutdown in US history was for 21 days.CNN: History of shutdowns. This time may be different. We will have to see how things progress. However, the average time for a shutdown has been a few days. Here are a few links discussing the history of shutdowns and...

Thanks as always for your participation and being part of this PEB FORUM community! I have gone through a lot of work to update the site over the past few months. Let me explain a bit. First, when I say "update," it truly is an update. The forum software is Xenforo. (A great software for forums!) The Xenforo platform is what have used for the past several years. It is, in my estimation, the best out there. That said, it has taken a long (or maybe more accurately, a Loooooooonggggggggg) time for me to and the various pieces (software platform, hosting, add-ons, etc., etc., and probably others) to get things working the way I hoped and expected. Along the way, I have had to spend a lot of money to not only maintain but to try to advance the site. To date, I am not really satisfied with the results over the last year or so....but, I am pleased with recent developments). Additionally, I have changed hosting providers, have increased the site's...

I have been able to finally implement the "new" article system (which, it is really just restoring the previous article system functionality, but, it is updated for the new version of the forum software). This is a test. Hope this is a helpful feature!!
