This 90-minute webinar will cover the basics of renting property in the military, as a landlord and tenant as well as the legal and tax implications of both sides of the rental agreement.
Military Permanent Change-of-Station (PCS) moves can have substantial impacts on military children and families, and it is important for service providers to equip themselves with the latest information to be able to provide education and support.
