Luke tax center seeks volunteers for 2014 tax season

The Luke Air Force Base tax center opens its doors to file returns for the entire Luke community beginning Jan. 27, 2014. Last tax season, the tax center assisted more than 1,500 clients file federal and state returns, saving the Luke community more than $316,000. To offer this great service again, the tax center requires the support of Luke community volunteers.

The tax center relies solely on volunteers (active-duty, civilians and retirees) who become certified tax preparers through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. Volunteers must become certified tax preparers by completing the required web-based training, even if they have volunteered in the past. Classroom training will be available in December or January at Luke for those who do not complete the online certification.

Once certified, volunteers will be asked to work at least four hours per week in the tax center from Jan. 27 through April 15, 2014. This is an opportunity for Airmen, civilians and retirees to serve the Luke community and learn a valuable skill.
