BASE TAX CENTER SEEKS VOLUNTEERS
The Little Rock Air Force Base Tax Center will open Feb. 1, 2012, for tax season. Last year the Little Rock AFB Tax Center saved service members $172,911 dollars in preparation fees and garnering more than $1.5 million in refunds. All of these savings were made possible by volunteers. Tax Center volunteers are trained through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. At the conclusion of the VITA training, volunteers qualify as certified tax preparers. Training is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 12 – 16, and is a requirement for first time volunteers, but optional for returning volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a Tax Center volunteer or have any questions about the VITA program, please call Capt. Tamera Kennard or Senior Airman Linae Totten at the Legal Office at 987-7886.
