I just medically retired from active duty & am starting a position as an overseas contractor. I will be a 1099 employee. What things should I be doing to prepare for taxes?  This is a whole new world for me. Does USAA have CPA's or referrals? 


Do your taxes like you would normally just on a different form. The forms are pretty self explanatory my father is recently retired and he hasn't had any issues but I may be wrong
You may want to pay quarterly taxes to help you minimize the taxes due!
