Tax volunteers wanted
The Little Rock Air Force Base Tax Center will open its doors Feb. 2 and is currently accepting volunteers for the upcoming 2014 tax season. Tax Center volunteers are trained through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, receiving valuable education on completion of federal and state tax returns. Volunteers are instrumental in meeting the tax filing needs for hundreds of active duty, reservists, dependents, and retirees from the surrounding area. Training is tentatively scheduled for mid-December 2014 and is a requirement for first time volunteers; optional for returning volunteers. Those interested in becoming a Tax Center volunteer or have any questions about the VITA program, please call Capt. David Aschwege or Senior Airman Yia Thao at the Legal Office at 501-987-7886. At the conclusion of the training, volunteers qualify as certified tax preparers, a crucial skill for managing their own financial affairs.
