1/16/2013 - FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- The Fort Bragg Tax Center will open on January 23, 2013 at 0900. The Tax Center provides free tax preparation, electronic filing, and tax form distribution for federal and all state tax returns.

The Tax Center has relocated to the 6th Floor of the Soldier Support Center (Old Womack) on Normandy Drive. The Tax Center will have a dedicated phone number beginning January 22nd. That number will be 396-1040 or 396-8299 (TAXX).

The hours of operation are from 0900-2100 Monday through Friday and 0900-1700 Saturdays, closing on Sundays. The Tax Center will also close on all major federal holidays, but will be open on most training holidays. The Tax Center will be open until midnight on April 15, 2013. If you visit the Tax Center after 1800 hours Monday - Friday, you MUST enter and exit through the main canopy-covered entrance to the Soldier Support Center. This will be the only entrance open after hours. Also, this will be the only entrance open on Saturdays.

Active duty service members (including members of the Reserve and National Guard component on active duty orders for more than 29 days), family members, and retirees are encouraged to take advantage of the Tax Center.

Assistance is provided on an appointment or a walk-in basis.  Appointments are strongly encouraged. In order to have returns prepared, taxpayers must:

(1) Arrive at the Tax Center no later than one hour prior to closing.
(2) Bring their W2 forms, which can be downloaded from the DFAS MyPay website at https://mypay.dfas.mil. A copy of an LES CANNOT be used.
(3) Bring their military/dependent/retiree ID card.
(4) Bring Power of Attorney if filing for another person or filing "married filing jointly" without your spouse present and any tax forms they have received in the mail.
(5) If taxpayers want to receive an expedited refund via direct deposit, they must also bring a canceled check.

The Tax Center cannot prepare or file taxes without this necessary paperwork.
