Special situations 
Active members of the Armed Forces might have questions about travel expenses, IRA contribution rules, and moving expenses.

Disabled veterans
There are resources available to disabled veterans to help them understand employment and retirement benefits. These resources help these veterans find out where to get free tax help. They can also find IRS forms and publications in formats accessible for people with disabilities.
