Tax season is here

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- It's that time of year again--tax season.  Let us help you calculate your taxes and prepare your returns without costing you a dime.  The Schriever Air Force Base Tax Program is run in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.  Tax assistance is available for Schriever active duty, retired military and their dependents through the base VITA representatives.

Federal and state tax returns can be e-filed through the VITA program resulting in faster refunds.

Individuals desiring tax assistance need to bring the following mandatory documents for their tax preparation: social security cards for all claimed exemptions, all W-2 Forms, all 1099 Forms, mortgage interest statements, child-care provider information, individual retirement account contributions, sale of stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds to include cost basis, alimony paid or received, receipts for charitable contributions, court orders or IRS Form 8332 for child custody dependent determination, and power of attorney if filing for a spouse. 

In accordance with VITA standards, this service is not for individuals with more advanced needs than the program training covers, such as members with a private business with expenses of more than $5,000 and/or a net loss, more than one rental property, complex Schedule Ds, or other advanced needs.  It is recommended individuals in this category make an appointment with a paid preparer.

The tax program runs until April 15.  Appointments for tax preparation are required and will be held in your VITA representative's duty location.

Capt Skylar Streetman and Michelle Martin are the Schriever AFB Tax Program coordinators and can be contacted at 567-5050 .

VITA volunteers and their phone numbers are listed below.  These volunteers have been certified and are qualified to assist in calculating taxes and preparing returns.  Unit VITA volunteers may assist with state tax returns within their scope of experience and training.

Call a VITA representative to make an appointment for tax assistance.
