2/20/2013 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass.  -- Many American's consider April 15, tax day, among the most stressful days of the year. Fortunately for base employees, tax professionals are available to assist in free tax preparation.

The Retiree Activities Office offers free tax return preparation assistance and filing for active duty servicemembers, reservists, retirees, Department of Defense civilians and contractors working on Hanscom Air Force Base. Their hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 781-225-1360.

Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service's website has a military tax information section containing military provisions and benefits information, free preparation opportunities and frequently asked questions. To access this information, visit www.irs.gov/individuals/military/index.html.

Another resource is Military OneSource. They provide tax consultation and online filing services, as well as access to H&R Block's At Home Basic online program, for free to active duty, Reserve and National Guard servicemembers and their families. The At Home program helps individuals prepare and electronically file federal and state tax returns and is accessible through the Military OneSource website, www.militaryonesource.com.

It is important to note that more complicated returns can incur charges if they require an upgrade to the At Home Premium product.

The site also contains tax planning and preparation resources. Participants can speak with a Military OneSource tax consultant for tax-related questions or help using the H&R Block At Home Basic product. For more information, call 800-730-3802.
