JBM-HH Tax Center to open Feb. 3

The anticipated opening date for the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Tax Center is Feb. 3, subject to change.

The JBM-HH Tax Center will be available for simple tax returns on the second floor of Bldg. 205, 101 Bloxon St., Fort Myer, Virginia. Operated by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, the JBM-HH Tax Center will serve active duty service members, their authorized dependents and retirees.

Please be aware that the 2020 JBM-HH Tax Center will operate differently from years past. The Tax Center will begin preparing taxes Feb. 3 for active duty service members and their authorized dependents only. It will open to retirees Feb. 18 and continue to serve all aforementioned customers through April 15. The center will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Customers will be seen by appointment only. Unlike years past, the Tax Center will no longer be seeing customers on a walk-in basis. By moving to an appointment only system, the Tax Center hopes to cut down on long wait times and customers making the drive to Fort Myer only to be told they cannot be seen that day. Appointments will be available every day the JBM-HH Tax Center is open. Customers will be able to call and schedule an appointment beginning Feb. 3 at (703) 696-1040. Customers can check the JBM-HH Consolidated Tax Center Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MYERTAXCENTER for unexpected changes to opening or closing times.

Please also note that limitations on the types of tax returns that the Tax Center may prepare have changed significantly since years past. Examples of returns that are outside the scope of the JBM-HH Tax Center this tax season include, but are not limited to: more than $100,000 in combined gross income, more than ten stock transactions, any foreign income or income from private business activities, more than one rental property (active duty only), and returns to be filed in Puerto Rico. Even if individuals have their taxes prepared at the JBM-HH Tax Center in past years, if individuals have any disqualifying tax situations this year, the Tax Center will be unable to assist them.

Customers must bring their military ID cards, orders to active duty if they are mobilized members of the Guard or Reserve, all income statements, Social security cards for all Family members, employee identification number for day care providers, all documents supporting deductions and credits, copies of their 2018 federal and state returns and, if applicable, a tax power of attorney or IRS Form 2848.
