In preparation for 2021’s tax season, the Retiree Activities Office would like to take a moment to highlight and explain the upcoming tax season.

The RAO has specially trained volunteers to assist you with tax returns. Electronic filing will be provided and refunds can be expected within approximately two weeks from the date of filing.

Appointments will begin on Monday, January 17, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. and tax preparations will begin on Monday, January 31, 2022 at 9:00 a.m.  All customers are required to show a military ID card.

Due to IRS COVID-19 protocols, no walk-in appointments will be accepted. You must call us at (813)828-0248 to schedule an appointment to receive services. Preferences for active duty service members and their families will occur on Fridays.

If the RAO did not prepare your previous year's tax return, you should bring a copy of the return you filed for that year.

The tax assistance program is sponsored by the 6th Air Refueling Wing Staff Judge Advocate office and is operated under the supervision of the RAO.

Volunteers are needed in a variety of skills and positions. If you would like to stay connected to the MacDill community and share your skills and talents, please contact our volunteer coordinator at (813) 828-4555.

You will be working with a great team of people in providing support to our active duty military personnel, retirees, widows/widowers and dependents. No experience is necessary as training will be provided.
