Tax season is almost over- April 15th is quickly approaching.

  • If you cannot file timely, file an extension for free online by April 15th. An extension does not extend the time you have to pay any tax due. You will owe interest on any amount not paid by the deadline, plus you may owe penalties.

  • Don’t wait to file your tax return just because you owe money. Avoid additional penalties and interest by filing your tax return now and choosing from the available payment options at: Payments. You can pay your balance online using IRS Direct Pay or apply for an online payment agreement.

  • Bring taxes you have withheld closer to what you owe to avoid owing tax next year. Use the IRS withholding calculator and update your withholding through OPM at https://www.servicesonline.opm.gov/.

As a friendly reminder, tax season is in full-swing. The IRS has many useful resources available online. Visit the IRS filing page for valuable information about free filing and resources for tax preparation help. Also be sure to visit the IRS tax center for retirees. The deadline to file the 2018 income tax return and pay any tax due is April 15th.

It’s February! And that means tax filing season has kicked off and you will need a copy of your 1099R, detailing annuity payments received during 2016, to start the annual fun. Retirement Services finished printing and mailing out hard copy forms last week. If you have not yet received yours, it’s probably on the way but regardless, you can access your 1099R electronically today on Services Online.

Simply go to https://www.servicesonline.opm.gov/ . If you do not remember your password, click on the “Forgot Password” link to get a new one. While in Services Online, make sure we have your correct mailing and email addresses to ensure you receive future correspondence from us. And after filing, return to Services Online to tweak your tax withholdings for FY 2017, if necessary.

If you enjoy getting your 1099R quickly and easily online, like thousands of your fellow annuitants, and have not already done so, elect to “opt in” to go green and skip the “hard copy” entirely next year! Plus with the savings from not having to mail over 2 million 1099Rs, we could help improve services.

Skip the call to Retirement Services, Services Online is available 24-7 during tax season and year-round!


As January comes to a close, it is time to start assembling everything you need to file your Federal income taxes.   The “hard copy” 1099Rs are hot off the press and will be in the mail this week.  There is, however, a way to access your 1099R today.

Simply go to www.servicesonline.opm.gov (SOL).  If you do not remember your password for SOL, instructions are provided on how to get a new one.   While in SOL, make sure we have your correct mailing address and email address to ensure you receive future correspondence from us.

If you enjoy getting your 1099R quickly and easily online, and have not already done so, elect to “opt in” to go green and skip the “hard copy” entirely next year!

You can return to SOL if you need to tweak your tax withholding for FY 2015…or if you need another copy of your 1099R later.

There is no need to call Retirement Services during business hours, as SOL is available 24-7 during tax season and year-round!
