Tax Center asking for volunteers

Dec 17 2009 - 9:12am

The Hill Air Force Base Tax Center is asking for volunteers to assist military members with the processing of their tax returns from mid-January through April 15. Experience is not needed. Volunteers will be given free extensive IRS training in January and will be certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistants, or VITAs. Some individuals may even be eligible to do their training online.

Although the concept of federal income taxes can be intimidating to most, many volunteers in years past from all sections of the Hill community have answered the call to assist Airmen and their families with their tax concerns. Volunteers will be preparing income tax returns, free of charge, for all active duty military members, dependents and retirees with military identification cards. The Tax Center provides assistance on a walk-in basis and by appointment.

Volunteers are needed to help clients from 8 a.m. through 3 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. The Tax Center will be on minimal manning during the upcoming Operational Readiness Exercise.

This year the Tax Center will be located in Building 430, the Customer Support Center, commonly known as the old BX, on 6th Street, just across from Burger King. Anyone willing to work a minimum of three hours per week in the Tax Center preparing tax returns should contact Capt Andrew Richey at or (801) 777-6626.
