1/12/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- The base tax office in Room 229, Sablich Center, opens Tuesday.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on training Fridays. Taxpayers are asked to call for an appointment to ensure a preparer is available to assist them, said Richard Ess, tax office manager. Almost all federal and state returns will be filed electronically. There are four filing stations at the tax office. Additionally, each squadron will have one or more tax preparers and a listing of names will be published as soon as it becomes available.

Electronic filing is in big demand as it lessens the time taxpayers wait for a refund. However, electronic filing requires that the taxpayer have: All W-2 forms. Social Security numbers for each family member claimed on a return. All 1099 forms which reflect either interest you earned, dividends received or retired pay.

A copy of your tax return from last year. A Form 8879 and state forms have to be signed by both tax filers, so both should be present or a taxpayer should be prepared to take the
forms to be signed by the spouse.

Taxpayers who are going to electronically file with itemized deductions may have to wait until the middle of February when that form is available in the system.

Several changes have been made for 2010:

The adoption credit is now refundable.

Taxpayers can make a qualified rollover contribution to a Roth IRA regardless of the amount of their modified adjusted gross income.

Some state and federal return forms may be obtained at the same location. Distribution racks with some state and federal returns are located outside of the tax office.

For more information and appointments, call 376-8141.
