Special to the Leader-Press


Fort Hood announced on Thursday, Jan. 26, that “Due to an increased mission set in the Fort Hood Legal Assistance Office, tax assistance will no longer be offered for service members and retirees here.”

The post stated in a press release that personnel are encouraged to consider the following options.

One is Military OneSource MilTax, which is a free software for preparing and e-filing federal and state taxes. Soldiers can also call a MilTax expert 24 hours, seven days a week, at (800) 342-9647.
