In order to have returns prepared, taxpayers must:

Bring your W2 forms, which can be downloaded from the DFAS MyPay website at A copy of a Leave and Earnings Statement cannot be used.  Bring your military/dependent/retiree ID card. Bring a Power of Attorney if filing for another person or filing “married filing jointly” without your spouse present and any tax forms they have received in the mail.  If you want to receive an expedited refund via direct deposit, you must also bring a canceled check.  The Tax Center cannot prepare or file taxes without this necessary paperwork.
The Tax Center is not authorized to prepare any tax returns this year involving rental properties, business income or cancellation of debts. You must either prepare those returns yourself or seek a paid professional.
