Mike Schiano, host of the InCharge Radio Network which produces MilitaryMoney.com speaks with Jackie Perlman, Senior Tax Research Coordinator for H&R Block, about two important law changes that can mean higher tax refunds for military reservist and national guardsman as well as a new opportunity to recoup money paid as a penalty for early withdrawal of retirement account funds in past years when this year’s income taxes are filed.
