Tax Assistance Center to open Jan. 30, volunteers needed

Region Legal Service Office Hawaii

The Tax Assistance Center will open on Jan. 30 at the Navy College Building, 1260 Pierce St., Building 679 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. The center will be in classroom 11 on the first floor.

The Tax Assistance Center will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Unlike previous years, the tax assistance center will only provide service-to-service members E1-E6 and their dependents with the ability to electronically file individual tax returns through internet-based software applications. Internal Revenue Service (IRS)-certified tax personnel assist with questions but do not prepare individual tax returns.

Volunteers are critical to the success of the Tax Assistance Center. To participate, volunteers will complete a self-study program to obtain advanced and military IRS certifications. Service members or their family members interested in volunteering at the Tax Assistance center full-time or part-time should contact Lt. Rosemarie Lombardi at 473-1394 or email or Lt. Kevin Griffin at 473-1387 or email

The Tax Assistance Center relies on local commands for supplies, including papers, pens and toner cartridges (NT-PE250 C toner for Lexmark E250D printer and E206 A11A toner for Lexmark E260D printer).

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)-certified tax volunteers at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Tax Assistance Center can assist with questions participants may have as they file their tax return electronically using this year’s self-service program. The tax center will close promptly at the scheduled closing time and accepts walk-ins only.

Service members using the tax assistance center should bring a photo ID for the taxpayer and spouse, Social Security Cards for the taxpayer, spouse and all dependents, all tax forms, bank account and routing numbers, and their most recent tax return.
