HEIDELBERG, Germany -- Tax assistance centers across U.S. Army garrisons in Europe will open by the beginning of February to offer free tax preparation and filing assistance to US Army in Europe personnel.

Active, reserve component and retired Soldiers, Department of Defense civilians, and their family members can use the free tax preparation services. Every tax preparer at these locations is certified to prepare taxes by the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program and works under the supervision of an attorney.

Some tax centers will open around the end of January, and all will be open for business by February 1. The tax centers will remain open through June.  For more information about local tax centers, eligible patrons should contact their garrison Legal Assistance Office or tax center.  Contact information for each garrison is listed below
