The Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Tax Assistance Center will open Jan. 31 at the start of the tax season.
The center will be located at the Navy College, 1260 Pierce St., building 679, classroom 11, first floor.
The tax center will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year, the JBPHH Tax Assistance Center has fully transitioned to the self-service model. With the self-service program, service members will still be able to electronically file their returns and receive assistance from IRS-certified tax personnel.
In doing so, service members can learn how to prepare taxes on their own using free, Internet-based software.
Beginning Jan. 31, members who wish to prepare their taxes from home will be able to do so by visiting http://www.myfreetaxes.com at the following url: www.myfreetaxes.com/jbphhtax. The adjusted gross income threshold for free use of myfreetaxes.com is $58,000 for tax year 2013.
Members can also electronically file their own returns using H&R Block at home through Military Onesource. The website is http://www.militaryonesource.com.
