Stuttgart Tax Center seeks volunteer tax preparers for tax sason

The Stuttgart Law office is gearing up for tax time and is seeking volunteer tax preparers to assist the military community with 2017 returns.

Tax season begins each year in January and runs through early June for overseas military community members.

The Tax Center opens seasonally each February in Stuttgart to assist ID cardholders in filing returns. The offices will be in a new location this year at the Kelley Club in rooms 203, 204, and 205, on Kelley Barracks.

The Stuttgart Tax Center is a critical quality-of-life program that saves service members, civilians, and their families millions of dollars every year.  In order for the Stuttgart Tax Center to provide assistance to the Stuttgart community, volunteers are needed.

Volunteers must be eager to learn quickly so they can properly manage the preparation of nearly 1,500 tax returns, saving the community thousands in preparation fees.

How to Volunteer

Previous finance or tax preparation experience is not required. Volunteers must be able to work a minimum of two days per week and are required to complete the Internal Revenue Service certification training upon volunteering.

The minimum age to volunteer is 18.
