Volunteers aim to lighten the load of military men and women by assisting with their taxes. The Fort Hood Tax Center opened for the season on Tuesday.
Soldiers dedicate their self to protect our nation. Dozens of IRS-certified tax preparers are offering free services.
The service began decades ago to ensure that military members, their families and retirees do not have to focus on the time-consuming process of filing taxes.
“In order for our soldiers to be ready, they have to follow any legal or administrative responsibilities. And one of those is filing their tax returns every year,” said Richard Shiller, Esq., Officer in Charge of the Fort Hood Tax Center.
“Soldier readiness is huge for any installation, including one such as Fort Hood which is the largest military installation,” Shiller said.
The U.S. Army began issuing W2 forms last week.
Appointments are preferred. To schedule an appointment, call 254-288-7995 or 254-287-3294. They can also be made by coming into the Tax Center at Bldg 13 on 52nd Street.
