Since income tax season is rapidly coming to a close, the Tax Center will be closing on April 11.
The Tax Center offers free tax preparation and services for active duty service members, retirees, eligible dependents, and reservists on active duty orders. The Tax Center is staffed by volunteers who are certified to prepare returns by both the IRS and the California Franchise Tax Board.
The Tax Center is located at 1100 Kincheloe Avenue. Please call 275-ETAX to schedule an appointment between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday and between the hours of 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday. When you make an appointment, you will be told what information and forms to bring with you to your appointment. At a minimum, please bring last year’s tax return and any tax documents you have received for the 2012 tax year.
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., dorm residents who will be filing a 1040EZ may come in during walk-in hours at the Legal Office, located in Building 1. If you come during walk-in hours, please make sure to bring: (1) last year’s tax return, (2) completed page 1 and 2 of the Intake/ Interview Form (available at the Tax Center and Legal Office), (3) Military Identification, (4) W-2 and any other tax forms you may have received, and (5) a blank check with your routing and account number if you want your refund directly deposited. The last day for potential walk-ins will be April 10.
