Tax season is here again and the Redstone Arsenal Tax Center will be open for business for the 2019 filing season on Jan. 27.
The tax center volunteers provide free tax preparation to active duty, active duty family members, retirees, their family members and Reservists/National Guardsmen serving on active duty for 29 days or more.
The center is in building 3439, Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, on Honest John Road. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday until April 30. Clients are encouraged to make an appointment; however, walk-ins are welcome from 8 a.m. to noon on any business day. To schedule an appointment, call 842-1040 starting on Jan. 21.
Last year’s returns prepared by the volunteer-operated facility totaled 4,777 which included 2,411 federal and 2,366 state. This delivered $4,377,185 in refunds and saved $978,438 in fees.
