JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. -- The 11th Wing Legal Office will not host a tax center for military members this year, however online resources are still available.

According to Capt. Marissa Savells, 11th Wing assistant staff judge advocate, the Andrews Tax Center will not open due to fiscal restraints. In the past, more than 40 active-duty Airmen volunteered their time to help man the tax center. Unfortunately, this option is no longer feasible.

"Even though we aren't offering tax preparation this year, military families can still file their taxes, for free, online at various websites," Savells said. "However, attorneys may still be able to provide assistance with basic personal tax-related questions."

To find various online resources, military members can utilize militaryonesource.mil.

Military One Source also advises members on how to be smart with their returns once they receive them and put the money toward carefully planned purchases, reducing debt, or using it as a "financial cushion."

When filing online, members should have all relevant documents readily available. Documents include W-2s/1099-Rs, 1098-Es for student loan interest payments, dividend and brokerage statements and any other tax documentations.

If the member prefers to complete their taxes in person, services are located in building 1683 for a discounted price.

Savells also stated that Ft. Belvoir, Virginia and Quantico, Virginia offer military members and dependents in-person tax preparation services.

The JBA Legal Office is slated to hold a Retiree Day on Feb. 12 for retirees and their dependents to receive legal advice and make tax-related inquiries. An appointment will be required for these services.
