Attention Tax Filers:

There are changes coming to who can use the Fort Bragg Tax Center.
 
 For the 2019 tax year, only Gold Star Families will be eligible to use the services provided by the installation’s tax center.
 
 On average, 35+ service members are tasked to support the Fort Bragg Tax Center each year. Over the past few years, Fort Bragg has been reducing the amount of military manpower used across the installation. This means keeping Soldiers in their squads and platoons and not on a detail. We understand this change will be an inconvenience for some, however, the readiness and capabilities of Fort Bragg service members and units are our top priority.

ALL AMERICAN MARATHON UPDATE:

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (March 12, 2020) – Fort Bragg, in conjunction with the City of Fayetteville, is taking all appropriate measures to protect our community as much as possible. In an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to cancel the All American Marathon and all associated races and events.

"With growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, we are taking prudent precautionary measures to protect the health of all the participants of the All American Marathon and fellow community members,” said Col. Phillip Sounia, Fort Bragg Garrison Commander. “The wellbeing of our Soldiers, Families and civilians is our top priority, the difficult decision to cancel the marathon was made for the safety of our community to prevent the possibility of transmission.”

The concern for the health and safety of the community is shared with our partners at the City of Fayetteville.

“We completely understand the reasons behind the cancellation of the All American Marathon and stand behind our partners at Fort Bragg in their decision. It’s a tough call to make, but the right one,” said City Manager Doug Hewett. “It’s better to be overly cautious at this point. While we’ve not had any COVID-19 infections in Cumberland County at present, the race was drawing in participants from all over the region and many states, which could have negatively impacted not only Fayetteville but other areas once runners returned to their homes.”

All registered runners will receive a refund for the event. Participants will be contacted through the email they provided with more information.

For additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Race Team at (910) 907-3617.
