Carlisle Barracks Tax Center: 

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the Carlisle Barracks legal office will not be able to offer our usual Tax Center for the upcoming 2021 Tax Season.  The safety of our clients and our volunteers is absolutely paramount and cannot be handled appropriately in a normal Tax Center setting.  Unfortunately many of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) centers in our area are facing the same challenge and will also not be able to provide services. 

Military OneSource can be used to file your own Tax Preparation.  The link is to Military OneSource is       

Additionally, the Legal Assistance Office will still be available to answer specific tax questions.

Thank you for your patience.
