The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance center is scheduled to open its doors on Jan. 30, for service members, dependants and retirees interested in processing their tax returns at the VITA office on Mainside, building 1687 here.

Upon request, VITA will work remotely by sending tax preparers to individual units to assist Marines with their tax document submissions in their workspaces. Units interested in having a representative visit their workspace need to contact VITA soon because the number of units requesting visiting representatives is rising. VITA will only be able to provide this service for a limited time.

Camp Pendleton provides VITA at no charge to the service members and dependants who use its services. The center will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Service members interested in tax preparation assistance are asked to bring the following items:

·   Military ID

·   All 2012 W2s

·   Social Security Cards of any dependents

·   All IRS forms e.g. 1099-INT, 1099-DIV, Mortgage interest statement, Property statements, 1098-T, EIN or SSN for Day Care and documentation for Itemized Deductions.

For more information about the program, directions and other information you may need for processing contact the VITA clerk at (760) 763-2518 or visit the website at http://www.pendleton.marines.mil/Services/IncomeTaxAssistance.aspx.

    Do you know how to get ahold of their office, possibly via email. I am having some tax issues, and would appreciate some immediate assistance.
