Tax time is coming - are you ready?

GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Active Duty Members Assigned to Goodfellow:
All active duty members assigned to Goodfellow interested in free tax return and electronic filing should contact their Unit Tax Advisor. The UTAs will work with you from their desktop computer. Please contact your UTA for an appointment. The UTAs are limited to individual income tax assistance. They are unable to provide advice or assistance concerning privately owned businesses, and complex tax issues may be beyond their expertise. However, taxpayers may fill out a Schedule C and bring it in with the rest of their tax documents for electronic filing.

All Others:
The centralized Goodfellow Base Tax Center this year will be open by appointment and only to retirees, dependents, and those without unit tax advisors. The tax center will be open Jan. 27 through April 15 in the base library (Building 712) and will be staffed by volunteer income tax representatives. To make an appointment, please call the legal office at 654-3203.
