Tax centers at military bases around the country are opening soon. The Tax Center provides free tax preparation and electronic filing services to active duty, reserve and guard on active duty orders, dependents and retirees. National Guard members and their eligible dependents must be on Title 10 Orders in order to receive tax assistance. If the taxpayer is deployed to a Combat Zone, Persian Gulf, Hazardous duty area of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Albania, the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea north of 39th parallel, or Afghanistan, they have 180 days from the last day they were in the combat zone, or the last day of continuous qualified hospitalization for injury from the combat zone to file their return. For more information, contact your base's tax center.
